Circus Oz tumbles into Melbourne in their 40th year, with a brand new show Precarious. This year the Circus Oz Big Top will be nestled within the trees beside the Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria, presenting a 70-minute non-stop spectacle of acrobatic mayhem for audiences of all ages.

Inspired by the surrounds of The Gardens, Circus Oz explores what happens when the overseers of nature fail in their duty of care? In this new show, the physical possibilities of the human body demonstrate how easily the natural balance can be upended, creating chaos on a human and global scale.

Innovative circus acts are unearthed as the ensemble pushes beyond acrobatics to create an exciting three-dimensional world that examines the fragility that exists between humanity and nature. In this precious ecosystem it only takes one thing to go wrong before the natural balance is lost.

Precarious unfolds through an ingenuous maze of phenomenal acrobatics, spectacular aerials, live music and physical comedy. The unique skills and talents of the Circus Oz ensemble include extraordinary foot juggling, jaw-dropping aerial rope and tippy ring, mesmerizing roué cyr, Chinese pole, and hula hoop, all hilariously woven with original music from the Circus Oz live band.

Precarious takes us on a journey into the mayhem that is the ministry of nature, an absurd lo fi bureaucracy.
