ROUGE is a decadent blend of sensational acrobatics, operatic cabaret and tongue-in-cheek burlesque. It is a non-stop celebration of the astonishing, the surprising and the downright sexy. ROUGE is outrageously fun, shocking, exciting and breathtaking. It is subtly subversive, highly entertaining and an unforgettable night out.

After its stint in Melbourne, ROUGE will then head for a four show stint in Canberra in October.

“Welcome to a circus for the new age… Brilliant performances covered with rhythm and attitude and a certain aura permeates the venue that embodies the phrase, ‘Filthy and Gorgeous’.” ⏤ Weekend Notes 2018

Escape the every day and join ROUGE for the sexiest live circus cabaret experience.
