Circus Oz tumbles back into Geelong in May with Precarious, a new show filled with the company’s trademark phenomenal acrobatics, spectacular aerials, live music and physical comedy.
Part of the 2019 Deakin University Theatre Season Precarious takes us on a journey through an intriguing world, there are remnants of our icy past but this future reality is anything but. Inhabitants navigate this unknown world guided by their surroundings and their own ingenuity.
Geelong Performing Arts Centre CEO Joel McGuinness says “Precarious is simply a must-see for families or anyone wanting to be entertained.
“Circus Oz has been performing and touring for more than 40 years now and their unique combination of jaw-dropping antics, trademark humour and social commentary, all set to a killer soundtrack of live original music from the Circus Oz live band, guarantees a great night or day out.
“We’re thrilled to bring Circus Oz back to Geelong for another incredible spectacle of acrobatic mayhem in The Playhouse.”
Precarious is inspired by the icy plains of the Antactic and the extraordinary energies and colours of the Aurora Australis. These new arrivals must manipulate their surroundings, and each other, in order to turn the inhospitable into the possible. In this new show, the physicality of the human body demonstrates how easily the natural balance can be upended, creating chaos on a human and global scale.
Innovative circus acts and apparatus are unearthed as the ensemble pushes beyond the normal to create an exciting three-dimensional world exposing the fragility that exists between humanity and nature.
Precarious will run for four performances from May 30-June 1. A special family ticket price of $45 is available (based on two adults and two children, or one adult and three children). Book at gpac.org.au or phone the Box Office on 5225 1200.
