Circus Oz tumbles into Melbourne in their 40th year with a brand new show, Precarious. This year, the Circus Oz Big Top will be nestled within the trees beside the Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria, presenting a 70-minute non-stop spectacle of acrobatic mayhem for audiences of all ages.
Inspired by the surrounding gardens, Circus Oz explores what happens when the overseers of nature fail in their duty of care. The physical possibilities of the human body demonstrate how easily the natural balance can be upended, creating chaos on a human and global scale.
Precarious unfolds through an ingenuous maze of phenomenal acrobatics, spectacular aerials, live music and physical comedy. The unique skills and talents of the Circus Oz ensemble include extraordinary foot juggling, jaw-dropping aerial rope and tippy ring, mesmerising roué cyr, Chinese pole and hula hoop, all hilariously woven with original music from the Circus Oz live band.
