Rounding out their 40th year celebrations, Circus Oz has co-created an original hilarious rock ’n’ roll extravaganza – Rock Bang – with Otto & Astrid from the (self-proclaimed) best band in the world: Die Roten Punkte.

Utterly dysfunctional siblings Otto & Astrid attempt to tell their fantastical life story as orphans and growing up in artist filled squats to become the darlings of Berlin’s underground rock scene.

Distracted and inspired by the extraordinary bendy feats of the Circus Oz acrobats, Otto & Astrid quickly descend into squabbling, throwing rehearsed circus routines and songs into spectacular chaos.

The 120-minute performance is premiering at The Coopers Malthouse in Melbourne, featuring a full ensemble of 12 of the city’s most multi talented artists, musicians, designers and makers. At the conclusion of this exclusive premiere season, the show will be adapted to a touring show for five artists.

Credited with revitalising a traditional art form in a uniquely Australian way, Circus Oz is a rock ‘n’ roll, all-human circus that has influenced the development of circus arts around the world since 1978. This latest continuation of their legacy is not one to miss.
