Sydney, Australia - The Daily Telegraph; Circus in mood for madness

26th November 2015

Coffee Drinkers found themselves surrounded by a flash mob circus style last week when members of Circus Oz tumbled and juggled their way around customers at a popular Sydney cafe.

The troop ambushed customers at the Fine Food Store's coffee cart before springing into acrobatics, clown routines and songs to announce the return for the first time in two years of the 37-year-old big top to Sydney next month.

Circus oz marketing director Olivia Blackburn said customers had a "mixed bag" of responses - some in stitches, other were "really embarrassed".

"It was funny watching peoples reactions."

The show takes a look at "infobesity" culture and consumer overload and features 12 "fabulous weirdos" under the direction of Circus Oz artistic director Mike Finch.

The season will run from December 30 to January 24.
