XYZZY @ Space Place

Elevate your next night out with XYZZY – an immersive, award-winning art-based experience at Space Place. Created by leading contemporary artist Jess Johnson and director Simon Ward, Johnson’s hand-drawn compositions are transformed into an animated web of flesh mandalas, self-replicating architecture, undulating worms, hallucinogenic patterns, and messianic alien deities charged with 90s-inspired electronic synthesiser tracks.

Sit back as the dome theatre envelopes you in a psychedelic journey, all set to 90s-inspired synth tracks from musicians Lachlan Anderson and Stef Animal to name a few.

Friday and Saturday nights at Space Place.

Does The Dog Die? @ The Dowse

Animals in pop culture are beloved and polarising. They can have us rooting for them, terrify us, and break our hearts.

This Saturday at 2pm, join writer Pip Adam, whose award-winning novel The New Animals included creatures of both land and sea, and actor and stuntman Allan Henry, who played the titular Cocaine Bear in the 2023 movie. Adam and Henry will be discussing how their own work intersects with the themes of Good Bones, in which artist Michele Beevors presents life-sized sculptures of knitted animals, each with a tragic backstory. Delve into why we often have more compassion for animals than humans, and find out whether Adam and Henry think all dogs go to heaven.

Dinosaurs – Katreena Erin’s Single Release Party

Join us at BATS Theatre on the 20th of April in celebrating the release of Katreena Erin's next single, Dinosaurs. Come along for an evening of intimate folk music, including a sneak peek preview of the song before it's officially released!

Dinosaurs will also be performed live for the first time.

Katreena Erin is a Wellington born singer, songwriter and visual artist. Her music and art are deeply spiritual, often exploring themes of spirit and love.

Personal yet universal, her songs range from dreamy and biopic interspersed with touches of light humour - to haunting and sometimes other-worldly.

Tickets available at bats.co.nz.
