Sydney, Australia - Weekend Notes; Circus Oz: But Wait... There's More at Entertainment Quarter

9th January 2016

To many an adult, it comes as a surprise that a child finds more interest in a cardboard box than $500 worth of Fisher Price toys. In Circus Oz's But Wait … There's More, a box serves as a mini-stage, magical cabinet and fashion item. It's a fitting motif for a show that questions our obsession with accumulating "stuff". But Wait … There's More arrives at The Entertainment Quarter's Show Ring for its final season after two years on the road,...

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...

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

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 ...

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-...
