Circus Oz explodes with a fabulous new show TWENTYSIXTEEN – created in 2016, touring through 2016!
TWENTYSIXTEEN is cheeky, irreverent and hilarious – a refreshing cocktail of new and old, innovation and tradition. The turbo-charged acrobats bring amazing new skill and wizardry to the flying trapeze, the Chinese pole and unicycle adagio. A brand new group-juggling act is sure to drop jaws as 21 clubs duck and weave from acrobat to acrobat.
Guest Show Director Anni Davey said her inspiration comes directly from the artform itself: its rawness and its authenticity.
“The circus exists in everyone’s imagination and for some people that imaginary space is their real world. In the circus there is no editing, no replay button, no seven-second delay, no CGI, no sequencing, no sampling, no trickery – it is just really great tricks. The circus is real people doing extraordinary stuff,” said Davey.
Two hours of high-voltage acrobatics and explosive aerial antics all accompanied by the sensational Circus Oz band. TWENTYSIXTEEN is classic Circus Oz: absurd Australian larrikins pushing the boundaries of possibility and defying the laws of physics.
