Circus Oz is a legendary, world-famous, globe-roving icon. Formed in 1978, the company is Australia's anarchic pioneer of contemporary circus. From 42nd Street, New York to remote Aboriginal communities in Arnhem Land, the company has taken its critically acclaimed self-crafted performances to 27 countries across five continents.
The Circus Oz show is a rock-n-roll, animal-free circus that appeals to adults and children alike. Their spectacular shows are an eclectic mix of original live music, absurd acrobatics, graceful aerial performance, fast-paced knockabout comedy, full of dare-devilry, tongue-in-cheek humour, and the renowned collective mayhem that never stops from the moment the band strikes up until the last curtain call.
With new Artistic Director Rob Tannion taking the helm in 2016, the company sidesaults into exciting new creative territory with his visually dynamic directorial style and choreographic eye entwined within theme-based, narratively driven shows. The multi-talented ensemble shares the limelight in an exuberant celebration that swings precariously between the sublime and the ridiculous.
