REBEL: A David Bowie circus rock tribute

Next date: Friday, 15 July 2022 | 08:00 PM to 09:00 PM

Rebel is a glittering glam rock non-stop circus Bowie party!

Strut right up to the Multi-Arts Pavilion mima for a night of glittering glam rock, phenomenal acrobatics and a heart-stopping sideshow. Rebel is a live rock and roll circus tribute to the original rebel, David Bowie.

This spectacular experience is inspired by his words:

"I want to tart rock up. I don't want to climb out of my fantasies in order to go up on stage — I want to take them on stage with me.”

Much more than a tribute show, Rebel is your Bowie fantasies realised. Live music combined with circus and comedy brings to life an incredible body of work and revels in an aesthetic that broke ground and inspired generations.

Rebel is headlined by the incredible multi-award winning Stewart Reeve, featuring a rock star band of artists from across artistic genres, and co-created by Highwire Entertainment, the production house behind Rouge, Papillon and Pop Party Throwdown.

Rebel is brought to you as part of MAP mima presents, a series of curated performances that highlight the unique nature of MAP mima as a multi-purpose performance space that integrates art and technology.
