Retro Futurismus, New World
It’s a wild and inventive cabinet of curiosities, with no spectacle too outlandish nor heel too high. – The Age
Retro Futurismus is back! Maude Davey, Anni Davey, Anna Lumb, Gabi Barton & Teresa Blake return to Melbourne with their exclusive, post-apocalyptic after party– when everything else is gone what will be left but carousing and revelry?
Following a sold out premiere season in 2015, Retro Futurismus returns to fortyfivedownstairs with a new installment, New World – a colossal future-focussed vaudeville featuring zero gravity circus acts, siren songs, boutique burlesque, and breathtaking performance art…
New acts! New Guests! New Wave! (Yes, this time we’re channeling Gary Numan).
“Retro Futurismus is glamorous and bizarre entertainment, full of left-field surprises.” – The Age
“This is a future that is well worth seeing and is as amusing as it is strange and frightening.”- Stage Whispers
