Premiering in Melbourne last year, Circus Oz sizzles back into the Circus Oz Big Top at Birrarung Marr with their reconstructed 2013 show – cranked up from touring regional Australia, a New York City run of standing ovations and hot from an extended season across America. Circus Oz 2013: Cranked Up hurls the 2012 show, From The Ground Up, to new heights – it is a production that has been honed, road-hardened, made tight and allowed to play hilariously fast and loose. Expect the irreverent Circus Oz spirit, revel in seeing some of the company’s much-loved characters again and thrill at some daring new feats as Mark Sheppard steps into the shoes of roving Indigenous provocateur destined to disrupt Circus Oz’s ongoing brand of ridiculous tomfoolery that leaves audiences howling for more.

Credited with revitalising a traditional artform in a uniquely Australian way, Circus Oz is a rock ‘n’ roll, animal-free circus that has influenced the development of circus arts around the world since its foundation in 1978 – and this year turns 35! Circus Oz 2013: Cranked Up Season 19 June – 14 July 2013 Preview Wednesday, 19 June 2013 Gala Night Thursday, 20 June 2013 Duration 2 hours (plus 20 minute interval) Venue Circus Oz Big Top Location Birrarung Marr, between Federation Square and Batman Avenue, Melbourne Tickets $24 – $92 (on sale from Monday, 25 March 2013) Bookings 136 100 and ticketmaster.com.au
