Circus Oz returns to Melbourne this December, disembodying the ensemble to present an intimate two-week season of a new work - close to the bone at the Melba Spiegeltent in Collingwood.

Breathing down your neck, exploring concepts of space and proximity, close to the bone deconstructs the large-scale productions that circus oz currently tours to present a contiguous show for the melba spiegeltent, raising provocative questions of secrets, honesty and physicality – all too close for comfort.

Bringing their established skills to the wooden floorboards of the melba spiegeltent, close to the bone will feature a new mixture of collaboration between the circus oz ensemble as they conceal and reveal the complexities of being “close to the bone” through an acrobatic lens, complimented by the effusive musical virtuosity of Ania reynolds and Ben Hendry.

A rare opportunity to see circus oz in melbourne outside the circus oz big top season, close to the bone is pure, quintessential Circus Oz – close enough to kick, powerful yet vulnerable and with humour that is precariously close to the funny bone.

First commissioned to perform an intimate blue show for the adelaide festival (2004), circus oz has only presented three of these boutique seasons – all of which sold out.

close to the bone is directed by circus oz associate director debra batton in collaboration with simon yates and jo lancaster from the inventive company acrobat.
