Circus Oz (think Australian, not "Wizard of"), a Cirque du Soleil forerunner, has been heralded as the first contemporary big top in a field that's now thriving. This rock-and-roll, animal-free circus is known for breaking down the third-wall barrier between the audience and entertainer. Catch its first LA performance since its 1984 Olympics opening ceremony appearance, and take in everything from flips and juggling to death-defying aerial stunts.
