If you want to learn how to fly, you’ve got to learn how to fall.
Roller Coaster is a fierce new participatory production, exploring the ups and downs of life on wheels.
Based on real stories, this epic spectacle is a journey through the lives of skating humans who collide with their destiny and are sent smashing into the very best versions of themselves, coming out bloodier, bolder, and braver than ever before.
Featuring an explosive live soundtrack of all new original music, live roller-skating , and a series of action-packed interconnecting stories, Roller Coaster is a deeply personal, thrilling and heart-warming ride to finding your tribe.
Roller Coaster was first premiered at Bleach* Festival on the Gold Coast from 3 – 5 August at HOTA Home of the Arts and is available for presentation in communities across Australia from 2024 onwards.
