20th October 2015

Delightful kids theatre. Curiosity performed by acrobatic group Dislocate, is a charming theatrical journey in to a land beyond the bottom of the toy box. Alex is an adventurer and very curious, which means we meet lots of interesting characters along the way. Alex is in trouble, preferring to use her brother’s skateboard for a mode of transportation rather than clean up her mess. Unfortunately for Alex she gets into more trouble trying to ex...

Canberra, Australia - Canberra Critics Circle; Circus Oz

24th September 2015

During the past thirty seven years, Circus Oz has performed in twenty seven countries to four million people. I remember seeing a performance in Elder Park on the banks of Adelaide’s River Torrens by the Adelaide Festival Centre.

Canberra, Australia - The Canberra Times; Circus Oz comes to Canberra Theatre Centre

18th September 2015
