Daring and intergenerational circus acts on the festival circuit

Circus shows from performers ranging from youths to sexagenarians are heading for MICF and Adelaide.
Three young circus performers wearing clean white clothing perform acts on a stack of milk crates. One is holding the crates while another is performing the human flag, and a third is climbing on top of the tower. In the background is a wall of crates in black, green, red and blue, with the back wall covered with newspapers.

Upcoming circus shows on Australia’s festival circuit offer a breadth of audacious delights and challenging spectacles. From 28 March to 21 April, Circus Oz returns with a new show, Smash it! as part of the Melbourne International Comedy Festival (MICF). Described as a ‘stripped back, tent-less, dauntless and daring’ showcase, Smash it! is designed by a multigenerational cast for a multigenerational audience. Sexagenarians, Millennials and Gen Zs unite for an hour of family entertainment, directed by David Woods (Ridiculusmus, Back to Back Theatre, Sydney Dance Company, Malthouse Theatre).
