Model Citizens CIRCUS OZ Shoalhaven Entertainment Centre 2018 Season
SPECIAL SCHOOL PERFORMANCE

Circus Oz has put together a special performance suitable for schools.

Celebrating their 40th year, Circus Oz explodes back on stage, audaciously unpacking the myths of modern Australia in their latest high octane circus show Model Citizens, the first creation for the company by Artistic Director Rob Tannion.

Model Citizens seamlessly blends the risk and beauty of breathtaking physical improbability with theatricality, choreography and Circus Oz’s distinct brand of Australian humour.

Stunningly lit and driven by a sensational live music soundtrack, Model Citizens unfolds within a cleverly designed model-kit world that challenges perspective, scale and concepts of normality.

In Model Citizens over-sized, everyday objects are used as unexpected circus equipment that create an intriguing new playground for the all-human ensemble.

Acrobats will back-flip off a giant vertical clothes peg, become tangled in an oversized cotton reel, balance on a house of oversized collapsing cards and fly high in an enormous pair of aerial undies!

Exposing circus skills in unconventional ways, Model Citizens presents stunning group acrobatics with a twist. Model Citizens is a visually and emotionally charged journey by the multi-talented Circus Oz ensemble, which explores what it really means to be a model citizen in today’s ‘model kit’ society.

“Australia’s iconic circus company is rebooted and rocking the tent.” Herald Sun, Stephanie Glikman

“Model Citizens is colourful, well-choreographed and doesn’t have a dull second. It’s one of the company’s most child-friendly shows in its 40-year history, but the Looney Tunes playfulness and vintage props (giant clothes pegs, safety pins and cotton reels) have nostalgic resonance for adults.” The Australian, Chris Boyd.
