About the Show
PRESENTED BY CIRCUS OZ IN COLLABORATION WITH OTTO & ASTRID
Rounding out their 40th year, 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. 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 of being orphaned as kids 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. Rock Bang is a riotous, hard-rocking Circus Oz explosion detonated by Otto & Astrid.
