Ruhrfestspiele Recklinghausen is the oldest as well as one of the biggest and most renowned theatre festivals in Europe. In and around the main theatre, the so-called Ruhrfestspielhaus, productions of well-known directors, performances of price-winning actors and presentations of young talents of the theatre scene join up a coherent concept.
Scotch and Soda circus channels the vibe of some alternate place and time where early military brass bands meet travelling gypsy's in a rowdy whiskey joint. Leading you back in time into the roaring twenties and the realm of vaudeville with their grimy charm and awe-inspiring acrobatics. A dusty bar. A rowdy mob of misfits. Lose yourself in the extraordinary beauty and power of Scotch and Soda – an evening of raucous circus, dance and music. Scotch & Soda is like a cocktail of breath-taking artists and first-rate musicians. With physical feats and gypsy beats, this evening’s entertainment features live music from The Uncanny Carnival Band, and sensational, gravity-defying circus from some of Australia’s finest acrobats. Like a good scotch, this show is best served straight up.
