This performance is the Celebrity Series of Boston debut for Circus Oz.

Inspired by a construction site, From The Ground Up is a tight and road-hardened production allowed to play hilariously fast and loose that features acrobats suspended from, and flying through the air around, the show's centerpiece - a giant swinging steel beam. From old black and white photographs of workers on high steel girders, Circus Oz has created a new production, starting from the ground up. With a ridiculous combination of jugglers, musicians, acrobats, riggers and aerialists, it's a celebration. Exuberant raw spectacle and danger for the sake of it!

Circus Oz was born in Melbourne, Australia in 1978 and their 35th birthday year marks decades of mounting extraordinary shows and successfully touring both nationally and internationally. As Australia's National Circus, they have toured from New York to South American rainforests and Madrid to outback Australia. Circus Oz has taken its self-crafted performances of wit, grace and spectacle to 26 countries across five continents, to critical acclaim.

Credited with revitalizing a traditional art form in a uniquely Australian way, Circus Oz is a rock ‘n' roll, animal-free circus that has influenced the development of circus arts around the world since its foundation. Adults and children can enjoy Circus Oz together and appreciate the breathtaking stunts, irreverent humor, rousing music and an all-human ensemble. Circus Oz promotes the best of the Australian spirit: generosity, diversity, death-defying bravery, and a fair go for all.

"Making a Circus Oz show is always three parts getting the right group together, two parts experimentation, four parts saying yes to absurd ideas, while trying not to injure anyone along the way. This year we have a continuing ensemble who have seen the inside of lots of theatres, thrown a multitude of tricks, stunts, and gags, and brought a lot of people to their feet. This mob have a totally unique mix of physical, musical and comic skill with the feel of a family of friendly weirdos all trying to outdo each other." 

Circus Oz Artistic Director, Mike Finch
