RCC 2021 – Fringe fun for all ages

RCC 2021 is a completely reimagined open-air program of music, performing arts, and immersive installations located in the heart of the city.

The RCC offers something for everyone in 2021 with a full program of entertainment, fabulous food options and plenty to delight the kids.  One ticket gets you entry to the RCC and access to everything on offer.  Entry is free before 6pm which is the ideal time for families to grab a bite to eat.  When you book your ticket you can select your entry time and stay as late as you like.

Two highlights for families this year include LOOPED and MOUNTAIN, plus A Simple Space will be performed by Gravity & Other Myths on the final weekend of Fringe (20 & 21 March).


Wander through the soaring arches of this opulent inflatable sculpture created by insta famous and world-renowned artist Cyril Lancelin from Lyon, France. Cyril is renowned for his hybrid work merging sculpture, immersive installation and virtual experiences that forge links between the physical and the fictional.

You can’t miss Looped in the middle of the RCC – you’ll see kids running through, around, under and over this amazing inflatable structure.  It’s stunning during the day and even more impressive at night. 


The performance combines aerial theatre with cutting-edge interactive performance technology to explore society’s increasing dependence on technology and the effect it’s having on the world and biosphere around us. The four performers seamlessly meld acrobatics, dance and aerials to create a captivating spectacle.

Mountain is a 25 minute visually striking performance that will have you in awe as the flawless performers work as a team in front of a stunning interactive backdrop.  The aerial skills are outstanding and the screen they work with produces a breathtaking vision when taking in the entire width and height of the stage.

Features nightly:

  • Thursday & Sunday – 8.30pm & 10.15pm
  • Friday & Saturday – 8.30pm & 11.30pm

Directly after the show is when the kids (and adults!) are allowed to play – Mountain also features a projected 3D play space where you are invited to rediscover the environment, wildlife and our relationship to it as the stage is transformed into an interactive Australian habitat.  Throw the balls up in the air and watch as the backdrop follows each and every move.

It’s the audience’s time to shine as the interactive projection system encourages everyone to be animated, get moving and play along with Stalker’s giant interactive play wall on the stage.


2 SHOWS ONLY – 20 & 21 March 2021 at 5pm

Gravity & Other Myths – Seven acrobats push their physical limits without reserve; this performance is simultaneously raw, frantic and delicate. Supported by driving live percussion and presented so intimately that you can feel the heat, hear every breath, and be immersed in every moment. A Simple Space evokes real responses in audiences, something visceral rather than cerebral.

MUSIC – There are two stages this year – the Main Stage and The Cult Records – featuring a full line up of musicians – see the full list here.

THE STABLES – A concept venue by Gravity & Other Myths, is an open training and rehearsal space that allows the public to share in the grind, sweat and humanity embedded in the daily life of the physical artist.  Audiences will witness professional dancers and acrobats training alongside kid’s karate, roller derby or even fencing accompanied by a rotating program of experimental live music. No two nights will ever be the same! Nightly during RCC between 4pm and 8pm.

DOPPLER SHIFT – a self-contained structure shelter with gradient shading that incorporates immersive lighting and sound. The Installation visualises the Doppler effect in the visible light spectrum.
