An experimental festival of circus from Circus Oz


Circus Oz’s Sidesault at The Melba offering is set to come into Melbourne for its second run in October.

The festival will feature six local and international circus companies presenting their experimental works that promise to push boundaries and challenge the notions of contemporary circus.

Sidesault at The Melba will feature heartbreaking stories, compromised sight, smashing stereotypes, love addiction and Dadaism presented through a range of styles and approaches that span breathtaking physical stunts, high tech juggling, unpredictable clowning, dance, theatre and comedy.
In short, if you’re after a truly experimental cross-section of circus — here’s the ticket for you.
