CRANKED UP – CIRCUS OZ BIG TOP SEASON IN SYDNEY From 42nd Street to Arnhem Land – Circus Oz returns to Sydney with a brand new show! Circus Oz sizzles back into the Circus Oz Big Top at Sydney’s Tumbalong Park in Darling Harbour with their latest critically acclaimed show – Cranked Up from 1 – 27 January 2014. Inspired by a construction site, Cranked Up is a tight and road-hardened production allowed to play hilariously fast and loose that features acrobats suspended from, and flying through the air around, the show’s centrepiece – a giant swinging steel beam. From a New York City season of standing ovations; a hugely successful extended American tour; an Australian national tour crisscrossing the country from remote Arnhem Land communities to rave reviews in state capital cities – now it’s Sydney’s turn before the Circus Oz ensemble jet off to Boston and Montreal. The Circus Oz ensemble have bounced this show's characters, gags, stunts, flips and twists off each other for almost two years and they can’t wait to return to the Circus Oz Big Top jammed right into the heart of Sydney.
Darling Harbour Alliance welcome the global circus phenomenon back in January 2014 – where Circus Oz will be a key feature in the exciting activities scheduled in the precinct. Recruited from the Circus Oz BLAKflip program, Indigenous provocateurs Mark Sheppard and Dale Woodbridge amplify Circus Oz’s ongoing brand of ridiculous stunt-mastery, joining a multi-skilled team of acrobats, musicians, jugglers and clowns to present Cranked Up. Expect the irreverent Circus Oz spirit, cack yourself with the company’s much-loved larrikin characters and thrill at daring new death-defying feats – all accompanied by an original rocking eclectic live band. 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!
