WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - The Circus Oz will be at the Elliot Hall of Music Sunday afternoon.
Performers call it a contemporary circus, and said they take on various roles.
Performers said acrobats may turn into jugglers, and then those jugglers may turn into musicians.
Performers said so far, audiences have not been disappointed.
"People are just amazed everyone does everything," said Circus Oz Director Ed Boyle. "People will do a pole act then start juggling or start playing an instrument. It's just a sense of fun."
"Everybody enjoys it, which is great," said performer Ghenoa Gela. "It's for a whole range of people, from teeny boppers, all the way up to mature, experienced adults."
The show originated in Melbourne, Australia.
