Circus Oz

The Brief: During Melbourne International Comedy Festival (MICF) 2023, Circus Oz delivered a sold out run at The Forum with Non Stop, which received five-star reviews. For the 2024 show, Smash it! Circus Oz looked for publicity support to ensure the sold out run was repeated.

Smash it! is Circus Oz as unbelievable as ever, stripped back, tent-less, dauntless and daring, where sexagenarians, millennials and Gen Z’s unite in chaotic and hilarious harmony.

The energy is relentless, the acts apparently very dangerous, the characters subtle and slightly unhinged. It is everything you hope for and more in a packed hour of family entertainment without any pretensions to be more than a rip-roaring ride through another side of life – the wacky one.

Circus Oz has been running for forty-five years and is looking forward to the next forty-five. Established in 1978, Circus Oz are proud leaders of circus arts in Australia and globally. The Company was founded as a politically progressive ensemble featuring strong women, graceful men, and cranking original live music. The Company is working out of its home in Collingwood, training, developing new work, and rehearsing for its upcoming shows.
