Circus Oz – Model Citizens

Australia’s only high octane cruelty-free rock-n-roll circus returns to Penrith after its sell-out season back in 2014, and this time they’re audaciously unpacking the myths of modern Australia.

Set in a beautiful yet chaotic model kit world, Model Citizens seamlessly blends the risk, beauty and rawness of acrobatic circus with pumping live music, stunning lighting, breathtaking physical improbability and no shortage of absurdity.

Breaking conventions of scale, oversized everyday objects become an intriguing world of possibilities for this all-human ensemble – as these enlarged set pieces offer new life as exciting and unexpected circus equipment.  Imagine hand standing on the top of an upright giant peg or juggling whilst balanced on an oversized stack of weighing scales…

Audiences will be taken on a visually and emotionally charged journey by the multi-talented Circus Oz ensemble, exploring what it really means to be a model citizen in our ‘lucky’ country today.
