With performers flipping into the air from a giant teeter-totter, balancing on each other in acrobatic feats and swinging from the death-defying trapeze, Circus Oz is out to dazzle Greater Lafayette with a performance it’s never seen before. And the group is doing it all with an Aussie twist.
The group, from Australia, combines stunts, comedy and a live band for a uniquely Down Under circus experience, said performer Mason West.
“We don’t take ourselves very seriously at all,” West said. “If you’ve seen Cirque du Soleil, it’s pretty much the exact opposite.”

The group will perform in a show presented by Purdue Convocations at 4 p.m. Sunday at Elliott Hall of Music.
The show has a construction theme, West said, and performers will evoke the high-flying antics of building high rises by rolling around on paint cans and swinging from a large beam.
The group’s unique circus style is difficult to describe, West said, but the goal is to leave people saying “I had no idea circus could be like that.”
