Circus Oz And City Of Melbourne Celebrate World Circus Day
To celebrate the seventh World Circus Day on Saturday April 16, Circus Oz and the City of Melbourne came together on Thursday to bring everything circus to the great outdoors.
The famed Circus Oz ensemble showcased a series of breathtaking acrobatics, flips and spins on the grasses of Birrarung Marr to live music against the backdrop of the splendid Melbourne city skyline.
Under the patronage of HSH Princess Stephanie of Monaco, each year the Federation Mondiale du Cirque and circus companies around the world celebrate World Circus Day. This year's World Circus Day theme is focused on collaboration and cooperation for the future of circus.
The City of Melbourne and Circus Oz have a long-term partnership in bringing the Circus Oz Big Top to Birrarung Marr each winter to share circus with Melbournians and all visitors to Melbourne.
The TWENTYSIXTEEN Circus Oz Big Top season commences on Wednesday June 15 and runs until Sunday July 10 on Birrarung Marr.
