ROKKO’S ADVENTURES

TV magazine, 4 x 25 minutes

Rokko’s Adventures has been around since 2007, and since then it’s been a lot of things: mostly print organ, but also Mexican magic powder, floppy disk, scavenger hunt, pig’s paw, outside commando, band, brow-beaten and bohemian shopping. Rokko’s Adventures would also work as a card game, inn, ventriloquist or official apprenticeship – and now actually as a television magazine.

In the show Rokko’s Adventures, you stroll through a surreal Vienna and discover people and worlds you wouldn’t necessarily have suspected, even though they’re happening on your doorstep. On these unintentional scavenger hunts you will meet Prater booth owners, canal cleaners, Voodoo Jürgens, Sibylle Rauch, weird vaudeville troupes, Ronnie Rocket Superstar, catholic exorcists, nurses and patients on the Baumgartner Höhe, pleasure girls, their henchmen,…
They are allowed to tell freely from the liver, even if the contents are idiosyncratic.

So in four episodes you spend four days and nights with the person Rokko. He is in his early 40s, a college dropout, has been working at the gardening office for years and is a bit frustrated with his affairs. One day, the boss sends him to a job that Rokko takes as pure harassment, and so he spontaneously decides to shit on it: instead of going about his work, he stumbles moodily through Vienna, drifting, repeatedly falling into trap doors and landing in unexpected situations.
