Quebec, Canada - Planete Quebec; Four Stars

10th March 2015

The title ‘But Wait…There's more!’ refers to marketing that wants us to impress speaking of new products, improved, more powerful, hence the wait there is more! A part of the troupe enters by the audience playing the saxophone and drum. They take the opportunity to tease the audience along the way. Once on the stage, acrobats come out of a big trunk already on stage. A spectacular entrance that immediately puts us in a spirit of celebratio...

Quebec, Canada - MontralRampage; Review But Wait… There’s More: Circus of Excess

10th March 2015

But Wait…There’s More by Circus Oz is an energetic showcase of talent. What is impressive about this troupe is how multi-talented the performers are, mastering acrobatic technique as well as various other skills, such as trapeze, clowning, and hooping. Some of the performers even play musical instruments throughout the show. The show is all ages, but the theme of the show centres around consumerism and excess. This show constitutes a reflect...

In fact we will be entitled to a hilarious clowning number where indeed a stuffed kangaroo play a small role, but for the rest, we will return. Only reference to their distant origin: clothes striped wit...

Urbana, IL, USA - Smile Politely; Circus, Oz

16th February 2015

It’s likely you’ve been to the circus at some point in your life. I mean, I don’t know you, personally, but if I were to say the word circus, you’d probably be able to conjure two or three mental images from your past. I myself once rode on the back of an elephant. Whatever your idea of the circus might be, however, I would stipulate that, if you want to see the circus in a whole new way, you should see it with a five-year-old. This pas...

Seattle, WA, USA - Seattle Pi; A small, wacky Circus Oz

6th February 2015

It may not have the dazzle of Cirque de Soleil or the over-the-top tomfoolery of Teatro ZinZanni, but Australia’s Circus Oz is a wacky one-ring circus with an appeal all its own. With a dynamic troupe of 10 circus performers – most of them acrobats – plus two musicians and a female emcee, Circus Oz offers a few death-defying feats but mostly an evening of delightful aerial and earthbound acts, live music, rigging and dynamic staging.
