Review: Circus Oz Model Citizens

Are you teetering on a mountain of credit card debt that it threatening to tumble? Run away and join the circus. In Circus Oz that's a literal balancing act the likes of which you have almost certainly never seen before. As the name suggests, this is the most Aussie of the circuses. It's all about being a "model citizen" in Australia today, From the giant Y fronts to the burnt snags on the barbie and the mountain of laundry on the massive Hills Hoist, all the Aussie icons feature larger than life in circus acts. Not all the stunts are as jaw dropping as those you will see in other big name circuses but they will still have you gasp and hold your breath. No need to tell you not to try them at home. Unless you are a human freak, that's not going to happen. But what really sets Circus Oz apart is its sharp humour, political observation and great sense of fun. It's this that has been the trademark of Circus Oz since it was formed in 1976. It's circus, but not as we know it and that's what we love. Where else will you find Dad jokes, observations about negative gearing and an aerial undies act in one package that  makes perfect sense?  Only at The Playhouse QPAC until Saturday.
