about the show

Set in a beautiful yet chaotic model kit world, Model Citizens seamlessly blends the risk, beauty and rawness of acrobatic circus with pumping live music, stunning lighting, breathtaking physical improbability and no shortage of absurdity.

Breaking conventions of scale, oversized everyday objects become an intriguing world of possibilities for our all-human ensemble – as these enlarged set pieces offer new life as exciting and unexpected circus equipment.

Audiences will be taken on a visually and emotionally charged journey by the multi-talented Circus Oz ensemble, exploring what it really means to be a model citizen in our ‘lucky’ country today.
