AGM approaching

Monday the 26th of March is the day of Circusoc’s annual general meeting. To be held at 6:30 pm in the Wurth Room of the UNSW Roundhouse.

At the AGM, the club will decide on who represent it in the executive committee. Also we discuss and decide on any constitutional changes, then we eat pizza.

People considering running for an executive position should prepare a speech for the AGM and talk to the current position holder to get an idea of their future obligations.

It’s O-Week

Circusoc is making its presence known at O-Week once again. This time of year is our biggest push for finding new members and showing off our talents to the university’s newest inhabitants.

We’ve a stall set up on the Quadrangle, so if you’re around, come and say hi and have a go with the equipment we have out.

Recent Shows

Circusoc’s been busy of late, we’ve performed for thousands over the past few months, here’s a few highlights.

In July, we performed for the Australian Medical Students’ Association Annual Conference, and then half a week later, for the Australian Law Students’ Association Annual Conference. Both were big events and we were probably seen by over 2000 people across the two nights.

We were characters from Charlie and the Chocolate factory, we were roamers, we had a teeterboard, fire, a sword and acrobalance.

Then last week, Circusoc performed at Sydney Town Hall for the Australian Market and Social Research Society. This gig allowed Circusoc to show its aerial feats, as we had high flying performers wowing an audience along to the music stylings of Sam Moran — otherwise known as the Yellow Wiggle! Check out the photo gallery!

All out recent shows were lots of fun and we’ve had some great responses. We’re looking forwards to our upcoming gigs, first up… the Army.

Performers at the Commonwealth Games

Five Circusoc fire twirlers performed marvelously at the closing ceremony for the Commonwealth games in Delhi recently. Our performers received good time on international television, they looked great, and their skills were beamed onto the Zeppelin in the middle of the stadium.

We’re incredibly proud of them.

Performance at the Officers Spring Ball

Circusoc performed tonight for around 650 guests at the Australian Defence Forces’ Spring Ball at Victoria Barracks.

Our fire performers provided a powerful entrance as guests arrived, leaving a great first impression for the evenining.

Later, Circusoc performed a death defying teeterboard routine and sword swallowing act.

We were very pleased to contribute to the evening. We hope to get photos up soon.
