Finally, here’s a future you can look forward to.

Blast off with a cast of aliens and astronauts, robots and roaches (the only survivors of the nuclear fallout) for a night that puts the ‘odd’ in ‘space odyssey’. Drawing from the superior DNA of the likes of Circus Oz, Retro Futurismus is an old-school variety night with a sci-fi flavour, equipped with hi-tech burlesque, space-age circus artistry and post-apocalyptic performance.

A stellar cast – the Davey twins, Gabi Barton, Anna Lumb and Teresa Blake - tip their space helmets to the visionary likes of Björk, Bowie and Barbarella and uncover how the past saw the future. In an atmosphere inspired by the work of Fritz Lang, Margaret Atwood and Stanley Kubrick, a dystopia has never been so delightful.

Note: This event contains nudity. Recommended for ages 16+. The Meriton Festival Village is a licensed venue. Under 18s must be accompanied by a responsible adult.
