We need no Noah to know the floods are coming. There is no divine intervention required, the angels are silent yet the prophecy is happening. As blue ice transforms to surging mud we are told this is our chance to diversify. The ice breaker cuts through ten thousand years leaving new routes to nowhere. As the waters rise we toast progress with this new saline to intensify our madness. We need no Noah, we all need to shout. There is no ark. This is our rain dance.

The All Seeing Hand are embarking on their annual traverse of Aotearoa New Zealand in July with compañeros Lady Lazer Light and Seth Frightening. The band are known for their immersive ritual performances, but this is the first time audiences outside of Wellington will experience the transformative visual universe of Lady Lazer Light. With the combined force of sound, light, chaos and order, alchemy waits!

The musical world of The All Seeing Hand touches many soundscapes while being complete in its own language. It is a gateway, opening ears to the sonic environment we cohabit with machine and emotion. The band is a three piece comprised of turntables, drums and throat.

Lady Lazer Light transforms spaces and performances into all-encompassing multimedia rituals. Her world-creation involves set, costume and performance design. Her living mixture of video clips has a powerful sense of narrative, delving into pop culture, fantasy and psychedelia creating collages of obscure found images and original content.

Seth Frightening is a Wellington native, singing blood yodels with contagious sincerity and a taste for the macabre. Both band and bard, Frightening weaves stories of clouded characters; their actions and reactions reading like a diary account of a car crash, as seen by all parties – a regretful drunk; an infant victim; a curious rubbernecker.

We need no Noah, we all need to shout.
There is no ark.
This is our rain dance.
