The always innovative Circus Oz returns with the first production for the company by new artistic director Rob Tannion, exploring what it means to be a ‘model citizen’ in Australia today through awesome physicality, biting satire and highly skilled, unpredictable acrobatics.
With an impressive cast of aerialists, cheeky characters, daredevil acrobats, cigar box juggling, hula hooping and backyard banter Circus Oz have created a mesmerising show for audiences both young and old.
Set inside a model kit world complete with giant scissors and cotton reels, peg springboards and hammock-sized undies on the line, the performers swing from knife-dodging to acrobat-tossing, contorting through huge steaming irons to tumbling off a house of giant credit cards.
With a brand new ensemble of performers, a thumping live band and set design that challenges scale and perspective, the latest Circus Oz show brings a fresh sophistication to the troupe’s larrikin personality, delivering exhilarating family-friendly feats with poise and charm.
Until Jan 28. Circus Oz Big Top, Prince Alfred Square, Corner of Church & Market St, Parramatta. $35-$170+b.f. Tickets & Info: www.sydneyfestival.org.au
