About Circus Oz
As one of Australia’s leading national performing arts companies, Circus Oz is an iconic element in Australian culture – we have always valued diversity, humanity, community and hilarity.
The Circus Oz headquarters provides a dynamic home and incubator for circus in Australia. The purpose-built complex based in Collingwood (Melbourne) integrates training and class studios, wardrobe and props workshops, office spaces and the historic venue: The Melba Spiegeltent.
Circus Oz supports the development of new, emerging and diverse circus artists through our Sidesault program that supports the sector in developing and presenting new experimental work; BLAKflip, an intensive master class program for Indigenous and Torres Straight Islanders; and the Strong Women program focused on development of women in circus.
Creating and presenting circus for everyone from around Australia and internationally, Circus Oz presents an extensive touring program to regional and remote towns through to large metropolitan centres. The company now celebrates a new era featuring bold collaborations and works of varying scale and style.
