Circus OZ has created a hilarious wild ride back to the fabulous ’80s and it’s coming to Burrinja.
NEON is an unapologetic, funny and downright dirty dancing cabaret where circus meets comedy and song.
Everything that is tongue-in-cheek and too-tight-lycra, NEON is an unforgivably fluoro and big shoulder pads night out – it’s adult, uncut and naughty with hazardous levels of hair gel.
NEON is hosted by cabaret dynamo Geraldine Quinn (Rockwiz and Spicks and Specks) who will belt out ’80s classics while the Circus Oz ensemble showcase eye-popping circus skills and stunning acrobatics as they make everything that is so wrong about the ’80s so right.
Directed by Malia Walsh, NEON features mesmerising hula hooping, beautiful juggling, gravity-defying adagio en pointe, hand balancing, incredible vocals and physical comedy.
Circus Oz artistic director Rob Tannion said NEON was one offering that fell within Circus Oz’s new array of shows created for all types of audiences that were vastly different in size and experience.
“Be prepared to experience an hilarious ’80s late-night of big hair, shoulder pads and incredible acrobatic feats, all performed in the tightest and brightest of lycra,” he said.
“NEON is mischievous, uncensored and definitely not what you would expect.”
