Following an action-packed national tour crossing Arnhem Land, a Sydney Big Top season, then a smash-hit international tour across America to Montreal, Melbourne audiences will get their chance to see the new Circus Oz ensemble in But Wait…There’s More – making its world premiere under the Big Top at Birrarung Marr tonight (19 June).
Circus Oz shows are co-created from the inspiration, ideas and energy derived from the unique skills of each member of the extremely diverse ensemble that are then woven into the core concept of the show like layers of a collage.
Performed within a spectacular large-scale set inspired by an abandoned theatre in tatters, But Wait…There’s More accelerates to become a roller-coaster of info-besity, speed and choice-mania – it will be a punchy, exciting and funny vaudeville-inspired show for humans of all ages.
With an astonishing mix of stunt-jumping acrobatics, cutting-edge juggling, virtuosic unicycling, elegant flying trapeze, the exciting Rou Cyr rim, cheeky impersonations, ridiculous knockabout and multi-skilled human physical exuberance, But Wait…There’s More uses circus to satirise the rising tide of information, speed, consumerism, visual pollution, television, the ‘net and today’s manic fast-paced lifestyles.
Circus Oz draws on 36 years of true Aussie irreverence, history and culture, continuing a great tradition of collaboration, innovation and accessibility.
