Brisbane Festival and Griffith University present


12 - 13 Sep
The Courier-Mail Spiegeltent
Queensland Premiere

Inspired by the music of the legend that was David Bowie, this worldwide smash-hit show is a starburst of cabaret and rock.

Enter the hyper-real world of seventies glam rock where the supremely talented entertainer Sven Ratzke inhabits Bowie’s multiple personas – a mad, bizarre, androgynous universe. Explore Bowie’s life from New York to Berlin and rediscover his classic songs in this crazy rock ’n’ roll ride.

Ratzke is accompanied by his brilliant three-man band with the music grooving from rock into sound collages and intimate moments.

Come and see why STARMAN has won over critics and audiences everywhere and has the New York Press saying “Sven Ratzke is a must-see!”.




This performance contains adult themes, sexual references, drug references, coarse language and uses a haze machine. Suitable for audiences 18+ years.
