Melbourne Circus Oz
Precarious: Be amazed by this incredible, death-defying Circus Oz performance!
In their 40th year, Circus Oz tumbles back home to Melbourne to premiere their new show, Precarious, under the heated Circus Oz Big Top. Across the winter school holidays, the tent is nestled within the trees of the beautiful Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria with three weeks of shows from 26 June – 15 July 2018.
Inspired by the garden surrounds, Precarious is a 70-minute non-stop spectacle of acrobatic mayhem for audiences of all ages. The Circus Oz ensemble unearth innovative circus acts to create an exciting three-dimensional world that examines the fragility that exists between humanity and nature.
The outstanding 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 of course, the hula hoop.
The creative team have done a fantastic job, constructing a performance that goes beyond presenting just the magnificent feats of the circus performers by interweaving a meaningful story into the performance which is so beautifully communicated to the audience by the performers. The ensemble will amaze you with their physical strength, poise and beautifully choreographed routines. They not only mystify you with their talent but will manipulate your mood with their hilarious clowning skills and their ability to contrast this by creating pathos.
The performance is set to the original music by the Circus Oz band, a two-piece ensemble who cleverly manipulate the mood of the performance and set the pace with their talented vocal, percussion, and keyboard skills.
Precarious is a great family show for all ages. Young children and grown adults will all be amazed by the performance and the romance of it being presented under the Big Top in the enchanting Royal Botanical Gardens. Be sure to check it out.
