The company’s 30th birthday year marks three successful decades of international touring, as well as confirming its place in the hearts of generations of Australians. From New York to Hong Kong, Circus Oz has taken its self-crafted performances of wit, grace and spectacle to 26 countries across five continents, to critical acclaim. The Circus Oz show is a rock-n-roll, animal free circus that adults and children can enjoy together.
