Arnolfini - est 1961

Join Charismatic Megafauna as they perform on the Arnolfini Harbourside. A trio with drums, moves, voices and ideas, they are no-nonsense, and at the same time bizarre.

“DOWN with clarity! UP with incoherent sprawl!” Art-world lateral thinking combined with a brutal vivid sense of good loud fun. For joy, and fury, and things we’d be fools to guess at, their havoc is liberating and compelling.

In the words of Jack Chuter of ATTN Magazine:

“warped sexual assault statistics are pummelled under stick and foot, with all three members laying their catharsis upon a single drum kit. Yelped voices and vibrant playsuit colours project forth, as the group tip between skeletal punk, thunderous tribe and the brink of total collapse”.

Charismatic Megafauna is Jenny Moore, Georgia Twigg and Susannah Worth, an all-drum, all-live, all-loud trio. As well as regular gigs at the likes of Biddle Brothers and Open School East, the band has played as part of Supernormal Festival, Wysing’s Space-Time Festival, Conduire for the Art Licks Weekend, and the Art Licks V&A Late. Their debut music video was screened at Doing What Comes Naturally’s Spare Rib event at the Feminist Library in August. In September, they were in residence at Focal Point Gallery in Southend, played live on Resonance FM’s Hello Goodbye Show, and are currently working towards the release of their debut EP.
