Like the Moulin Rouge itself, Canberra is a city of intrigue, where glittering facades belie a seething underbelly of politics, creativity and raw sensual power.
Born in the early decades of a new century, roller derby captured the spirit of an age: cheeky, rebellious and exciting.
As the women and men of Canberra Roller Derby League tip their helmets to a centenary of action, they celebrate by bringing their strongest, hardest, fastest game to the Australian Institute of Sport.
Enter a dark and mysterious world, filled with exotic strangers and witness feats of daring and athleticism.
Energized by a hard-fought home season, the skaters of CRDL will don their ever flattering uniforms and safety gear and give you a spectacle like no other. Welcome to The Moulin Bruise!
