Right now people are hungry for live spectacle wherever they can get it. And they don't get more spectacular than an exhibition that's about to land in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch early next year.
It's called Van Gogh Alive! - and that's putting it mildly. Multi-channel motion graphics, 40 high-definition projectors, with cinema-quality surround sound, and believe it or not, subtle use of perfumes.
A mini version of the Van Gogh experience ran recently in Wellington and completely sold out. Simon speaks to the head of the Australian company bringing it out - Grande Experiences CEO, Bruce Peterson.
