CIRCUS OZ COMES TO TOWN!
Fresh from blowing away the notoriously tough British critics, who gave them 16 rave reviews during their London season, Circus Oz will return to the Sunshine Coast for two only special performances at the Nambour Civic Centre.
Since last coming to Nambour in 2001, Circus Oz has had a non-stop schedule that has seen them thrilling audiences across the world - from a sellout season in New York; to being one of the biggest hits at the Adelaide Festival; to London, Darwin and Brazil.
Members of Circus Oz love the skills and tricks of traditional circus but like to present shows that a contemporary audience can relate to, adding elements of rock'n'roll, popular theatre, social comment and satire. They want it to be funny, irreverent and spectacular, a celebration of the group as a bunch of multi-skilled individual women and men, rather than a hierarchy of stars. Above all, they didn't want to take themselves too seriously!
The overall tenor of the performance has remained consistent over the years. There are usually eleven to thirteen performers (normally with at least two specialised musicians) who present an intimate spectacle of unrelenting energy, humour, multi-skill playing, surreal imagery, grace and strength,
fully integrated with a live and original musical score.
This time around Circus Oz has managed to pick up one of Australia's finest performers, Captain Frodo, a founding member of Australia's legendary Happy Sideshow. He's a fabulously talented contortionist, fire eater, whipcracker and all-round self-made freak who can squeeze his whole body through the head of a tennis racquet, so he's capable of some pretty unusual things! In addition there are several acts cooked up while Circus Oz has been on the road.
Don't miss this great entertainment from a company that is world famous for its absurd humour, non-stop energy and death-defying antics. This will undoubtedly be one of the hottest shows to come to the Coast in 2005. Saturday 7 May at 1.30 & 7.30pm!
Bookings are now open through Nambour Civic Centre, telephone 5475 7777.
