CLUB WTF- The Lepidopters

A SPACE OPERA (Indonesia/ Australia)

Presented by Brisbane Powerhouse

Gird your loins! Alien moths have invaded the Indonesian archipelago and plan to colonise Earth through inter-species reproduction.

Prepare yourself for this cross-genre, cross-cultural avalanche as an Indonesian prog-metal band, a virtuoso pianist, a gamelan machine, a narrator and a visual artist combine for one mind-bending night of fun. Michale Keiren Harvey stars as the pianist.

The Lepidopters: A Space Opera is part of CLUB WTF.

The Lepidopters at WTF 2016 is supported by the Australian Government through the Australia-Indonesia Institute of the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.


At times reminiscent of Arvo Pärt, at others like Sufjan Stevens, Herbie Hancock and Bikini Kill decided to play a triple bill in a museum.
