All the spectacle of a circus with a deliciously deviant, adults-only twist – ROUGE is a mind bending blend of death-defying acrobatics, grandiose cabaret and deeply twisted burlesque. A titillating celebration of astonishing proportions that’s surprising, subversive and supremely sexy.

Winner: Best Circus & Physical Theatre Show, Adelaide Fringe 2020.

‘One badass, sizzler of a show.’ ★★★★★ – Daily Mail (UK).
