Serving up a disorderly cocktail of wild theatre, banging jigs, slapstick comedy and eye-popping circus, this jaw-dropping spectacle will leave audiences dazzled, dizzy and ready to change the world. Infusing the magic of theatre with the excitement of variety and the energy of the dance floor, RIOT broke Dublin Fringe box office records, set social media ablaze and is touring the globe in 2018.
Rooted in the Irish traditions of poetry, oratory, Irish dance and song, then deconstructed using musical, electro, striptease, drag and pop culture, RIOT is a theatrical gut-punch. It is a love letter of hope to the future and a clarion call on the state of the world today.
Thrilling, uplifting and utterly unique, RIOT is your big summer night out, with a delicious twist. The production comes to Melbourne following a Sydney Festival season.
