Transport yourself to the rose-hued dirt of the outback with Red Desert Dream, the first instalment of Selve’s visual album.

The Gold Coast-based band, led by Jabirr Jabirr musician Loki Liddle and Reece Bowden (Anaiwan), Selve Cinema is an immersive cinematic performance work that features 6-piece rock band Selve performing their notoriously high energy show to screen content written + directed by Alethea Beetson inside HOTA’s Cinema 2. Combining visuals from Red Desert Dream, Selve x Alethea’s recent visual album, and brand new music + visual content made for the show, Selve Cinema is a sensory overload that combines the vision of writer/director Alethea Beetson with the narrative songwriting of Selve in a feat of collaborative First Nations storytelling that defies genre and transcends silos. Bliss out to their beats and discover why this group has been impressing audiences at festivals across the country.


Selve are an alternative rock band led by Loki Liddle (Jabirr Jabirr) and Reece Bowden(Anaiwan), who are known for dazzling audiences at their live shows at Woodford Folk Festival, BLAK DAY OUT, Springtime, Brisbane Festival, BIGSOUND and SXSW Sydney. In 2023 Selve are grounded, electric and ready to match their renowned performance reputation with the launch of their debut album Red Desert Dream.
