Circus Oz: Model Citizens

The latest high octane show from Circus Oz skillfully fuses risk and beauty.

28 Sep – 29 Sep

A seamless blend of risk, beauty, humour and live music.

Celebrating their 40th year Circus Oz explodes back on to our stage, audaciously unpacking the myths of modern Australia in their latest high octane circus show Model Citizens, the first creation fuelled by new Artistic Director Rob Tannion.

Model Citizens skilfully fuses the risk and beauty of breathtaking physical improbability with theatricality, choreography and Circus Oz’s distinct brand of Australian humour. Stunningly lit, and driven by a sensational live music soundtrack, it will challenge perspective, conventions of scale and concepts of normality.

Oversized everyday objects create an intriguing world for an all-human ensemble to expose circus skills in unconventional ways. Let Circus Oz take you on a visually and emotionally
charged journey to explore what it really means to be a model citizen in today’s society.

Recommended for ages 5+. May feature fire, smoke machines and strobe lighting.
