Steam Powered Circus Oz Brings Australian Circus to Kingsbury Hall (SLC: March 20 - 21)

Press Release

Steam Powered Circus Oz Brings Australian Circus to Kingsbury Hall

February 28, 2012: The legendary, world-famous, globe-roving icon Circus Oz brings its 2012 Steam Powered to Kingsbury Hall for two hours of absurd acrobatics, graceful aerial performance, fast-paced knockabout comedy, plus much more, all set to the rocking sound of the live Circus Oz band. Circus Oz will perform at Kingsbury Hall on March 20 and 21 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $19.50 - $34.50 and are available at www.kingtix.com or 801-581-7100. 

The 2012 U.S season of Circus Oz introduces their crew of highly skilled performers, with a clutch of new acts of non-stop energy. For this show Circus Oz has headhunted a gang of extraordinary fresh new performers. Hazel Bock, arguably Australia’s finest juggler, is a woman who can juggle a table with her feet. Sarah Ward aka Yana Alana/ex-SistaShe is a powerhouse singer who can impersonate anyone from rap to opera to cabaret. BecBeat is a drummer with an electric superhero act. Ania Reynolds who plays a mean keyboard and baritone saxophone.  Rowan Heydon-White is a blonde Amazon super-strong trapeze artist who can climb through a tennis racket, and Mason West is a nuggety half-Kiwi acrobat who can balance on a precarious stack of five rolling tubes. They’ll be joined by the current crop of super humans, rubber-limbed acrobats Paul O’Keeffe, Flip Kammerer, Luke Taylor, Jeremy Davies and guitar solo legend Carl Polke.

Believe it or not, it’s now more than three decades since the Australian-based Circus Oz first started making shows and traversing the globe to become a world-famous entertainment icon. So if you’re looking for something a little bit different to share with family and friends, come along and experience this special brand of circus anarchy.  Circus Oz will have you gasping and then laughing yourself silly.
