Rock Bang is a circus rock opera – it’s an energetic concoction and spectacle that shows off some extremely pliable acrobatics with one of the most solid and infamous musical duos ever created. 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. Circus Oz Artistic Director, Rob Tannion, explains, “We are so thrilled to finally premiere this exclusive season of Rock Bang – a riotous hard-rocking Circus Oz explosion detonated by Otto & Astrid. It combines loud rock music, big speakers, unapologetic circus skills and tricks, alongside plenty of stupidity and laughter.” Part rock concert, part side-splitting comedy and smashed together with acrobatic punk anarchy, Rock Bang is a sensory feast of heart stopping stunts, physical ridiculousness, soaring guitars, thumping drums and contagious tunes. 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. "We’ve been waiting our whole lives to make a rock opera with our songs and Circus Oz have helped us to take this dream to a whole new level with the bendiest people in Australia!” said Otto & Astrid. Premiering this November at The Coopers Malthouse, this exclusive Rock Bang world premiere season will feature a full ensemble of 12 of Melbourne’s most multi talented artists, musicians, designers and makers, before being adapted to a touring show for five artists.
