Being a model citizen in the lucky country – audaciously unpacking the myths of modern Australia
This year Circus Oz Artistic Director, Rob Tannion, along with a new diverse acrobatic ensemble, are fired up to launch the latest touring Circus Oz show, Model Citizens.
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, roll bowling balls haphazardly, unzip giant zippers, 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 will present stunning group acrobatics with a twist: a ten-pin roué cyr act, quirky ball juggling, diving through giant scissors, hard-core hula-hoops and pyjama escapism.
Model Citizens is a visually and emotionally charged journey by the multi-talented Circus Oz ensemble, which audaciously unpacks the myths of modern Australia and exploring what it really means to be a model citizen in the ‘lucky’ country today.
