Circus Oz tumbles back to Sydney with their new show in the Big Top – Circus Oz: But Wait…There’s More

After being on the road from Melbourne to Mildura; Port Macquarie to Palm Island; an international tour across America and a season at Montreal’s legendary circus venue, La Tohu, Circus Oz will catapult into Sydney with the Circus Oz Big Top this summer for the first time in two years. The Circus Oz ensemble will perform the final season of the touring show: But Wait…There’s More on the Showring at The Entertainment Quarter from 30 December 2015 – 24 January 2016.

But Wait…There’s More is the very first show created in the new Circus Oz custom-built circus home in Melbourne, and after touring together for two years, the world-famous Circus Oz ensemble are at the top of their game. They feature a creative bunch of 12 fabulous weirdos including graceful men, strong women, incredibly intricate and innovative jugglers, lyrical and virtuosic unicyclers, hilarious flying trapeze artists, booty-shaking hip-hoppers, highly-musical-acrobats and highly-acrobatic-musicians.

Performed under a Big Top and presented at breakneck speed through cheeky impersonations, ridiculous knockabout and multi-skilled human physical exuberance, But Wait…There’s More is a fantastically entertaining amalgamation of tricks and ideas, including a satirical look at today’s culture of infobesity and consumer overload based around society’s focus on stuff.

Throughout the tour and in true Circus Oz style, where collaboration, multi-skilling and invention are part of daily life, But Wait…There’s More has continued to develop and tighten as the ensemble refine their ideas, play with interludes and importantly craft their performances in response to audience reactions.

    Circus Ringmaster – I have lots of experience controlling lots of ‘colourful weirdos’ (aka children!) and I’d like to be paid to be bossy!

    for many years I’ve been saying I should have run away with the circus. This year I turned 40 and decided I have to try a trapeze which I did and it confirmed my life long theory that it is for me. I would be the one flying across the stage on a trapeze with my grand 48 kilos…that would be my dream!
