Over the spring school holidays, the Circus Oz Big Top will return to Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria, Melbourne Gardens to premiere the latest Circus Oz creation: Aurora directed by Circus Oz Artistic Facilitator: Kate Fryer with creative input from outgoing Circus Oz Artistic Director: Rob Tannion.
Blasting audiences into other atmospheres, Aurora will be a collision of amazing artistic elements, including jawdropping acrobatics, stunning visual projections and harmonically rich soundscapes.
The outrageously talented Circus Oz acrobats have never been afraid of heights, but in Aurora they’ll be pushed beyond their earthly limits as they leap into the stratosphere of unlimited possibilities.
An exhilarating and awe-inspiring 70-minute spectacular inside the intimate Circus Oz Big Top, Aurora will blend a feast of aerial delights: flying, swinging, straps and the Washington trapeze where aerialists perform various headstand skills on the bar.
From impossibly intricate foot-juggling to hair-raising balances, breathtaking hula hoops, Chinese pole with a twist and absurd physical comedy, Aurora is kept rocketing along by the original live music of the Circus Oz band as the ensemble tie themselves in knots with the greatest of ease.
Circus Oz: Aurora ticket holders will receive a 10% discount on the popular Garden Explorer, a guided hop-on and hop-off tour that loops throughout the Melbourne Gardens with expert commentary by friendly drivers who share their knowledge of the cherished plant collections and remarkable history.
September 18 – October 6
