Jumping up to a metre off the ground and 2 metres in a bound, they are a phenomenal sight. Their characters are a crossover of outback macho and inner city punk savy - always Roo'd but never offensive.
Giant kangaroos on amazing bouncing stilts? That’s ROO’D. Jumping a metre off the ground and 2 metres in a bound, they’re a phenomenal sight with their cheeky blend of outback macho and inner city punk savvy — always Roo'd but never offensive.
These kangaroos are a favourite at festivals around the world: so far Roo’d has appeared in Australia, New Zealand, Malaysia, Singapore, Japan, China, Canada, Dubai, Bahrain, Abu Dhabi, South Africa, Italy, Croatia, Austria, Germany, Holland, Belgium, France, Spain, England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland, making it one of Australia’s most successful independent creative exports.
At Glastonbury Festival in 2002, Roo’d was voted 2nd best act (after Coldplay) in a phone poll on BBC radio 2. Roving — available in groups of up to 6 performers.
‘People are still asking me if I was anything to do with the 8ft bouncing Roos. It was an absolute pleasure — I couldn't speak highly enough of them.’
Lenny, York Festival, UK
‘It has been said that the Kangaroos stole the show on both occasions and I congratulate you and your team for developing such an innovative roving performance act.’
