A more perfect venue could not exist for Dr Sketchy’s.  We are thrilled to be a part of such a historic venue where some of the world’s greatest artists, bohemians, freaks, talents and legends have sung, danced, drank and laughed….

And now, a brief history….

The Famous Spiegeltent was built in 1920. Since Marlene Dietrich sang Falling In Love Again in the 1930s, her magic mirrors have reflected thousands of images of artists, audiences and exotic gatherings. She is a star in her own right, hosting parties, concerts, clubs and a myriad of stunning performances, launching the careers of countless artists travelling the world.

Rosy Rabbit returns to the stage in a galactic way!

After almost a year the stars have aligned at just the right time for the return of Rosy Rabbit with her tribute to  Barbarella… Forces of evil beware!

The year is 2040.
The Age of Man is over. The Machines are here.

Rosy Rabbit returns to the stage with a blast off performance at Dr Sketchy’s this August.


Rosy Rabbit will then be performing this outta sight number as part of:

In this brave new world, mechanical forces have overwhelmed the human race. Cyborgs, futurists, blade-runners and unseen computer bodies rule the cities. Communications with extra-terrestrial forms of life have succeeded. Humans, declared extinct by their computerised counterparts, have all become but a distant dream.

The world has descended into a sensual mash-up of hedonistic pursuit and robot love. With cameras on every corner, televisions on every street and computers in every room, Big Brother LIKES watching you, baby. And in an old, dark theatre at Red Bennies, space girls, robots and human hybrids are planning the greatest voyeuristic exploration this side of the millennium.

Metropolis 2040 is … 1984 meets Daft Punk.
Metropolis 2040 is … Fritz Lang meets Barbarella.

With performances from:

Extra-terrestrial tassle twirler … LA VIOLA VIXEN (QLD)

The angle-grinding live wire… SPARKARELLA

The modern-day Barbarella … ROSY RABBIT

Space-age aerial from the deadly… SKOPALOVA

The exotic and erotic… FRANKIE VALENTINE
