The Arts Centre Gold Coast presents Model Citizens
Circus Oz explodes back onto stage, audaciously unpacking the myths of modern Australia with their latest high octane circus show Model Citizens, the first creation fueled by the new artistic director Rob Tannion.
Set in a beautiful yet chaotic model kit world, Model Citizens seamlessly blends the risk, beauty and rawness of acrobatic circus with pumping live music, stunning lighting, breathtaking physical improbability and no shortage of absurdity.
Breaking conventions of scale, oversized everyday objects become an intriguing world of possibilities for the all-human ensemble – as these enlarged set pieces offer new life as exciting and unexpected circus equipment. Imagine hand standing on the top of an upright giant peg or juggling whilst balanced on an over sized stack of weighing scales.
Audiences will be taken on a visually and emotionally charged journey by the multi-talented Circus Oz ensemble, exploring what it really means to be a model citizen in our ‘lucky’ country today.
‘For three and a half decades, Circus Oz has delighted itself into the hearts of generations of audiences embracing its role as Australia’s national circus.’
