Heterodoxia is a one-night-only performance spectacle, inspired by the artists’ fascination with rodeo culture and the pageantry of masculinity. After attending rodeos around Victoria and recording their exploits, the Heterodoxia artists have created a twisted version of the rodeo experience through digital, new media and performance technologies. See not-so-funny men get chased by beasts of immense size for kicks. Get trampled by V8 super bulls because you’re in their way to Hell’s stockyard. Be part of the invocation of the Demon Bull Rider and watch its eight second wave of destruction unleashed upon Melbourne, riding Hitler’s own super bad bull: Bos primigenius!

Forget being the voyeur. You’ll get to be the dancer in the dark with death for eight whole seconds! Outrageous contests, dead music, occult rituals, sacrifices, hay bales and sad boys. It’s all here under the digital stars in the rural heart of the city. So roll in, astral project, buck your way, even take the Ute, but don’t miss participating in this extremely dangerous recreational one night event! Blink and you’ll miss it and have to watch the replay for eternity.
