Sydney, Australia - StageNoise; Circus Oz - But Wait... There's More

8th January 2016

Roll up roll up the circus is in town. Circus Oz has come to Sydney again and it was awesome (this I know because I have seen them before and they are still great).  They have acrobatics, trapeze, feats of strength, juggling, unicycles, comedy and a whole lot more. It was easy to see that these people were fabulous athletes and very versatile. Nearly all of the troupe members performed in a number of different feats that ranged from flexibi...

6th January 2016

But Wait.. There’s More sees the gang return to Australia after much of 2015 overseas and finally bringing their rock ...

Sydney, Australia - Stage Whispers; But Wait… There’s More

5th January 2016

When you enter the foyer of the Circus Oz big top, there’s a man loudly selling programs, promising that if you buy, you can learn to read, become even smarter and pick up invaluable information to help “understand the show”. At interval, the same man is selling choc tops, again an over-the-top salesman, promising products that will change your life. He doesn’t actually say “But Wait… There’s More” but he’s clearly pointing to ...

Sydney, Australia - Kid Size Living; Review of Circus Oz: But Wait… There’s More

5th January 2016

Last night we entered the Big Top at Entertainment Quarter for an exhilarating ride with some of the most incredible circus performers we have ever seen. From the moment we entered the Big Top I knew this was going to be special.  It looked like any other circus but there was an air of difference: the laconic Australian humour of the program seller, the merchandise that was actually useful (water bottles and water pouches), the bright happy...

Circus Oz pairs astonishing moments of skill and beauty with progressivepolitics to create a satisfying spectacle for all ages. Dale Woodbridge-Brown, MC for the Sydney run of Circus Oz’s But Wait... There’s More, opens the show claiming he’s not your conventional triple threat: 'Singer. Dancer. Actor. I’m none of those. I’m gay. Indigenous. Adopted. It’s a minority soup'. With an Indigenous frontman, a gender-balanced cast, an anti-...

3rd January 2016

Thrilling and enthralling, the latest show from Circus Oz, But Wait… There’s More, is proof positive that this troupe is a national treasure. For 37 years, Circus Oz has been plying their trade, honing their craft, and cultivating their art and this show’s mix of traditional circus acts with a contemporary mindset and theme combine to create a spectacle that is as fearlessly physical as it is philosophical. The title of the show derives f...
