Circus Oz hits Sydney full steam ahead


By James Gorman

11 JAN 12

CIRCUS Oz is back with an all- new, steam-powered show to impress, amaze and astonish.
Circus Oz has captured the imagination of audiences since it began in 1978, with trapeze, acrobatics, juggling, precision hoop diving, human pyramids, in-line skating - and even a bit of magic.
Steam Powered is an industrial affair with loud, live music and amazing acts inspired by a fantastical neo-Victorian time, a place where romance meets newly industrialised technology.
Sarah Ward, who plays MC and rambunctious Boss Lady, said that it was Circus Oz’s ability to not take itself too seriously drew her to the show.
“Circus Oz has a really larrikin sense of humour,” she said.
“There is a huge scope for comedy and I think that is one of its strong points. That is why I was so drawn to it: you can muck around.
“I also get to travel Australia and see parts of the world that you normally wouldn’t get to see,” Ward said.
Highlights of the show include a deconstructionist “artistic bicycle” routine, Fantaysia Fitness, highly inventive trapeze acts and a great band.
Circus Oz is planning a new headquarters in Victoria.
Circus Oz is in town until January 29, under the Big Top at Darling Harbour
