Note: Working to reschedule
*Auckland Arts Festival/Te Ahurei Toi o Tāmaki (AAF) is sadly unable to open this Thursday 4 March as planned, due to Auckland being at Alert Level 3. We are working hard to hopefully reschedule much of the activity from the first part of our programme including Carnivorous Plant Society. If you hold tickets to this show, we will inform you of the new date and time as soon as details are confirmed.

With Tiny Ruins, Hopetoun Brown & Michael Barker
Melt your mind as the cinematic world of genius ensemble Carnivorous Plant Society fills Auckland’s spiritual home of movies for one night only.
Merging filmic soundscapes and lush orchestral pop to sublime effect, Carnivorous Plant Society is a gang of New Zealand’s most accomplished musicians performing psychedelic jazz across an astounding array of instruments. This is one of our dreamiest live bands for both adults and children alike.
Stories of dystopian futures, alien empires and trans-dimensional travel will unfold through the hand-drawn animations of bandleader Finn Scholes from the belly of The Civic Club, the perfect venue for such a cinematic experience.
“[A] shining, uplifting delight.” – John Campbell, RNZ
