Quotes & Highlights

“Refreshingly progressive…and gleefully Australian…a show as inventively funny as it is physically impressive,” —_San Francisco Chronicle _


Circus Oz was born in Melbourne, Australia in 1978. 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. Expect two hours of breathtaking agility, death-defying stunts, awe-inspiring acrobatic performances, irreverent comedy and a spectacular live band.

Circus Oz has a strong belief in tolerance, diversity and human kindness. For many years the company has engaged in issues associated with social justice and a good time for all, including work each year with many charities, indigenous communities and the raising of over $243,000 in donations to support refugees and asylum seekers.
