Variegated Productions and Holden Street Theatres present

Animation image of a shirtless man standing in front of a wolf howling at the moon and a snake in front of the sun.

Darkness. There are sounds of ice melting, glaciers creaking and a cold winter wind blowing. A tall, hunched figure in a pool of light appears: shirtless with tight black jeans and platform boots. He has a mighty beard, and a microphone.

Ragnarøkkr is Armageddon with the armour stripped off and the speakers turned up to 11. Meet the band at the burning centre of the end days: Nick Cave meets Ziggy Stardust in a Norse inspired musically riotous fall from grace.

From Variegated Productions comes this hotly anticipated follow up show to The Man and the Moon. Get ready to rock until the bitter end; this is a show about coming to terms with the fact that it’s time to move on.

Praise for Variegated Productions

★★★★½ "some of the best and most compelling theatre seen in Perth in recent times." - The West Australian, for Frankie's

"[St John] Cowcher is such a disarming performer and his songs - sometimes a little like Tom Waits...sometimes Jimmy Webb... - and the work of the gifted [Brett] Smith and his trio are so cool and hot" - The West Australian, for The Man and the Moon

"[Libby] Klysz's direction is tight throughout, the production is clever and skilful, and all four performers look like they're having a great time" - The West Australian, for These Guys
