Circus Oz performers shared their skills with Bendigo students this week, ahead of performances at Ulumbarra Theatre in April.

The circus visited Lockwood Primary School, Heathcote Primary School and Specimen Hill Primary School.

Capital venues and events manager David Lloyd said it was fantastic the performers visited local schools as part of their visit.

“Circus Oz has a strong track record of working within the communities that they perform in and we always try to organise as much community engagement and participation with our visiting performers as possible, so this is a great example of that,” Mr Lloyd said.

“This was a way for some of our young people to get a taste for circus performance.

“Their performance, Model Citizens, is set to be a great show for young and old to enjoy.”

Celebrating its 40th year, Circus Oz unpacks the myths of modern Australia in Model Citizens on April 6 and 7 at Ulumbarra Theatre.
