It’s Zexy….It’s Acrobatic….It’s Arty yet Accessible….
It’s CIRCUS OZ, the intimate circus troupe from Australia and they’re wrapping up a North America tour with their very first visit to Seattle this week, February 5 through the 8th at the equally intimate little Moore Theater with their current show, But Wait…There’s More.
Direct from Australia, CIRCUS OZ brings But Wait…There’s More, an astonishing mix of stunt-jumping acrobatics, cutting-edge juggling, virtuosic unicycling, elegant trapeze flying, the exciting Rou Cyr rim, cheeky impersonations, ridiculous knockabout, and multi-skilled human physical exuberance. But Wait…There’s More uses circus to satirise the rising tide of information, speed, consumerism, visual pollution, television, the ‘net’ and today’s manic fast-paced lifestyles. All of this is entwined within original music performed by CIRCUS OZ’s live and physically acrobatic band.
You can grab tickets HERE. Students/educators with school I.D. can grab Rush tickets for every show…”One $20 ticket per school I.D. one hour prior to curtain, cash only, all performances.”
We sent Dominic to check out the local press launch for the Seattle show held Tuesday at The Sky View Observatory located on the 73rd floor of Columbia Center. Circus Oz performer, Olivia Porter, renowned for her innovative and unique juggling style, was joined by musicians, Ben Hendry on drums and banjo, and Ania Reynolds, the musical director, on baritone saxophone.
