Circus Oz will be rolling into Lismore tomorrow with a new show called ‘But Wait … There’s More’.

Described as a ‘vaudeville-inspired show for humans of all ages’, the new show features a mix of acrobats, jugglers, trapeze artists and clowns, performing in a set inspired by an abandoned theatre.

The new show uses circus ‘to satirise the rising tide of information, speed, consumerism, visual pollution, television, the ‘net and today’s manic fast-paced lifestyles’.

Circus Oz artistic director Mike Finch said the show also features original music performed by Circus Oz’s ‘live and ridiculously acrobatic band’.

Mr Finch said an extensive search was undertaken last year to add new recruits to the Circus Oz line-up.

He said eight new performers had joined the circus, and would be joining four returning artists.

‘With so many new artists joining our ensemble, we are excited about the explosion of ideas and creativity that will emerge through the collaborative process,’ he said.

‘Audiences can expect an astonishing mix of stunt-jumping acrobatics, cutting-edge juggling, virtuosic unicycling, elegant trapeze flying, the exciting Rou Cyr rim, cheeky impersonations, ridiculous knockabout and multi-skilled human physical exuberance, all accompanied by an original, rocking eclectic live band.’

The Circus will be performing at Lismore City Hall tomorrow evening at 7.30pm and Saturday at 1.30pm and 7.30pm.

Please note, all shows have now sold out.
