THEATRE REVIEW: Circus Oz - Precarious provides light hearted comedy and awe inspiring stunts
Held at the gorgeous His Majesty’s Theatre, Circus Oz - Precarious was an exciting, impressive and humorous affair. Suitable for all ages, this impressive performance showcased some of Australia’s top acrobatic talent, with fun, silly comedy speckled throughout.
The brilliant cast was comprised of multi-skilled artists with incredible strength and flexibility. Adam Malone, Jillibalu Riley, Josie Wardrope, Karina Schiller, Matty Brown, Spenser Inwood and Tara Silcock graced the stage with a range of spectacular aerial stunts, extraordinary foot juggling and more. Inspired by the icy plains of the Antarctic, gorgeous colours of the Aurora Australis were prominent throughout the show.
Although no clear storyline was present, the show ran gracefully, with smooth transitions from one act to the next. Circus Oz certainly achieved the perfect balance of stunts that gave you the shivers, and comic relief that let you to breathe a sigh of relief.
Aside from the awe-inspiring aerobatics, a big highlight of the show was the mesmerising live music, continuously upholding the show’s steady pace and working to create varying moods, from tense and fearful, through to tranquil relief and good old light-hearted humour. The audience was blessed with the occasional saxophone ringing through, along with enthralling vocals, drums and keyboard all performed by the live Circus Oz band, Selene Messinis and Jeremy Hopkins.
Watching these talented people present such a spectacle of good fun was truly refreshing and a fantastic way to spend the night. Get your tickets to Circus Oz while they’re still available!
