An irreverent medley of apparently impossible things as acrobats, tumblers, flying, tight rope and slack wire conjure their way into the not-so-everyday world. Parklife, picnics, faux-antiquity and de-civilisation morph into life and spectacularly disintegrate. A new inter-generational troupe of spandex nymphs populates the cracked open world of circus past and present.

Smash it! is Circus Oz as unbelievable as ever, stripped back, tent-less, dauntless and daring. An ensemble of seven circus artists and three musicians blast, rip, smash, fly and tumble into a remarkable present where sexagenarians, millennials and Gen Z’s unite in chaotic and hilarious harmony. There will be water, bats and battiness, candy floss, duck shooting and balloon popping galore.

The energy is relentless, the acts apparently very dangerous, the characters subtle and slightly unhinged. It is everything you hope for and more in a packed hour of family entertainment without any pretensions to be more than a rip-roaring ride through another side of life – the wacky one.
