“Beautiful, unexpected and alive!” – Royal Society for the Protection of Birds

“I cannot think of another art experience that has bettered it” – Jay Griffiths, author

As dusk falls, gather the whānau together for an adventure in the bush, at this celebration of light, flight and birdsong from the makers of 2014 Festival hit Power Plant. This time the team have been joined by New Zealand artists to create an enchanting walk-through art experience in the native forest of Otari-Wilton’s Bush reserve.

Whether it’s our iconic kiwi or Sirocco the superstar kākāpō, Angry Birds or Twitter, we have a special connection with our feathered friends. Through ingenious use of light, sound and moving sculpture, the artists will get you thinking about the mystery and beauty of the avian world – and why it should be protected.

Take some time out from the madness of modern life to wander through the night and celebrate these wonders of nature.

Partnered by Wellington Airport and supported by the British Council and Wellington City Council.
