This month Rouge has another strong line up featuring two local comedians with very different styles: Alice Brine and James Nokise  As well as two out of town burlesque performers: classic performer Ruby Ruin from Christchurch and comedic character performer Amourous Ava from Auckland. They will be performing along side a hoola hoopist, a fortunte teller, a poet, a drag artist and musicians.

Rouge works to create a Victorian carnival sideshow feel to the event, she is inspired by the turn of the century travelling sideshows.

“In a time where there were such ridged social rules for behaviour and attire the carnival was a place to escape and embrace the extremes of diversity, eccentricity and the extraordinary.”
