★★★★”Intriguing & humorous. A deeply engaging and captivating show” Reviews Hub

Requardt & Rosenberg’s Future Cargo, the critically acclaimed sci-fi dance phenomenon, makes its Australian premiere at Adelaide Fringe 2024  from 16 February to 17 March 2024, at the Garden of Unearthly Delights.

There are reports of fireballs in the area. Power surges and blackouts and electromagnetic waves. The message boards are filling up with unexplained visions of ‘gods’ and lights. A mystery shipment arrives in the Garden of Unearthly Delights from an unknown location.

As the side rolls up on a 40ft haulage truck, an enigmatic machine will be revealed, and a strange and unstoppable process begins. A compelling invitation to make contact evolves and a seduction occurs between a human and an other-worldly force…


Future Cargo is an homage to a past where alien sightings were abundant, and a future where contact seems all too possible.

Created by David Rosenberg, best known for the immersive shipping container experiences DARKFIELD, and Frauke Requardt, one of the UK’s most inventive choreographers. Produced in Australia by Realscape Productions, the team behind DARKFIELD, Mummy’s Milk and Ghost Stories.

Timed with twilight at Adelaide Fringe, Future Cargo combines the spectacle of large scale dance performances with the suprising intimacy of an audience experience through binaural sound in headphones.

Performance times:
Tu, We, Th, Fr, Sa, Su @ 8pm
Fr, Sa @ 10:15pm

Tickets to Future Cargo can be purchased online here, with prices ranging from $20 to $40 plus booking fees.

“The strange world of those shiny aliens mingles with our own and, like good sci-fi, reflects us back to ourselves” – The Guardian
