8:30pm - 9:30pm (Tapere Nui, Te Auaha, 65 Dixon Street, Wellington)


Journey with us through a shrouded landscape knowable only through the shadows it casts.

On The Veiled Isle, the ocean is made of sand, the future is ancient, and your guides speak only in music....

The Veiled Isle is a live visual album from mystical Pōneke art-pop band, Birdfeeder. Working with performers Zoe Higgins and Pája Neuhöferová, Birdfeeder's music is animated through dazzling multi-layered shadow puppetry, light and object play.

Don't miss this bewitching, spectacular and surreal performance! Catch the trailer here!


Birdfeeder was formed in 2019 by long time friends and musical collaborators Stephanie Cairns (keys/vocals, lead songwriting), Josh Harris (drums) and Marley Mokomoko-Young (bass). Their music is characterised by unearthly melodies and vintage timbres, with lyrics spanning the personal, political and cosmic. They are gathering a reputation for catchy songwriting and a quirky visual aesthetic with their live shows and two self-produced music videos for Banana Boxes (2020) and The Long Haul (2021). The Veiled Isle was originally created in 2021 for Lōemis Festival.
