Circus Oz: Company members respond

68 Circus Oz company members have issued a rebuttal to the Board statement released earlier this month.

Shortly after 9pm on Thursday 9 December, the Circus Oz Board released a media statement announcing they would be winding up the company following their inability to convince the company’s approximately 100 members of the apparent need for organisational reform.  

ArtsHub published a story about this decision the following day, Friday 10 December, once the media embargo about the announcement lifted at 11:30am.
