Arts Centre Melbourne have teamed up with Australian circus company Circa and Academy award® winning studio Aardman to bring audiences Shaun the Sheep’s Circus Show at the Sidney Myer Music Bowl from 5 – 9 January 2022.

A visual spectacle, Shaun the Sheep’s Circus Show is must-see family summer entertainment, packed full of smart wit, vibrant circus skills and daredevil acrobatics performed in an outdoor environment for the first time.

Aardman’s signature Shaun the Sheep animation is combined with live performance from Circa, simultaneously blurring the lines between movement, dance, theatre and circus.

Circa Artistic Director Yaron Lifschitz and the ensemble capture all the sophisticated and challenging elements of Circa’s extreme physicality while embracing the fun, humour and playfulness found in the world of Shaun the Sheep.

Shaun the Sheep is a playful, rambunctious feast of humour, good spirits and the triumph of the little guy. The medium of circus is a perfect vehicle for bringing these qualities to the stage,” said Lifschitz.

“Melding the worlds of stage and screen and incorporating the extreme physicality of circus without losing the emotional depth and charm of the original is a major creative challenge – it’s the sort of thing we at Circa thrive on.”

It’s another topsy-turvy day at Mossy Bottom Farm. Shaun, Bitzer and the flock must escape runaway tyres, learn to fly and outwit charging bulls. All while distracting the farmer with astonishing improvised circus to stop him noticing they’ve broken his TV.
