20 April - 21 April
Townsville Civic Theatre
Circus Oz explodes back onto stage, audaciously unpacking the myths of modern Australia in their latest high octane circus show Model Citizens, the first creation fuelled by the new Artistic Director Rob Tannion with an amazing new acrobatic ensemble.
Stunningly lit and driven by a sensational live music soundtrack, Model Citizens seamlessly blends the risk and beauty of breathtaking physical improbability with no shortage of theatricality, choreography and, of course, absurdity!
The action unfolds within the cleverly designed model kit world which challenges perspective, scale and normality. Oversized everyday objects become an intriguing new playground of possibilities for the all-human ensemble, offering a new life as unexpected circus equipment. Imagine scaling a 6m safety pin, backflipping off a giant vertical clothes peg, getting tangled in an oversized cotton reel, or flying high in an enormous pair of aerial undies...
Audiences will be taken on a visually and emotionally charged journey by the multitalented
Circus Oz ensemble, exploring what it really means to be a model citizen in
today's model kit society.

Yirramboi First Nations Arts Festival
For 40,000 years Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people have been telling stories that embody their culture, history and identity on this land. Chasing Smoke is a unique glimpse into the world’s oldest living culture through the dynamic and limitless art form of contemporary circus.
Chasing Smoke is born out of Circus Oz’s BLAKflip, a program aimed at nurturing and ultimately increasing the number of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander circus artists on stage. The show will premiere as part of Yirramboi, First Nations Arts Festival.
Directed by Samoan-Australian director Natano Fa’anana (Polytoxic, Casus) an unconventional storyteller who chooses to learn from individuals rather than institutions, the premier of Chasing Smoke will not only challenge, amaze and entertain you, but also showcases the next generation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander circus legends.
