MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA - JUNE 19: Acrobats in Kangaroo outfits spring from the "Teeterboard" during the media call for the Circus Oz "30th Birthday Bash" at Birrarung Marr on June 19, 2008 in Melbourne, Australia. The Australian contemporary troupe of acrobats and aerialists celebrates its 30th year this year, predating other Cirque Nouveau troups such as Cirque du Soleil by around 6 years. They have toured in 26 countries across 5 continents, performing in locations from 42nd Street in New York to a refugee camp in the West Camp. (Photo by Mark Dadswell/Getty Images)
