A Good Catch AUS

Casting Off

Intergenerational circus with lots to say: the personal is political, fury is fun and the acrobatics downright dangerous – especially when life gets in the way.

Casting off stereotypes, these dynamic Australian women tumble, talk, fly, and balance precariously. They find joy in each other’s strengths, challenges and weaknesses, and in support of new possibilities.

A disarming, hilarious show about living on the edge and talking about it; and how it’s easier done than said. Circus that makes you laugh and cry simultaneously! Relaxed, personal and fantastically inappropriate.

Australian company A Good Catch makes arthouse circus with a devising and democratic process. They experiment with circus structures with a feminist tone and a proactive attitude.

Casting Off has won three fringe awards including The BankSA Best Circus & Physical Theatre Award – Adelaide 2019 The Total Theatre & Jacksons Lane Award for Best Circus at Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2018, and Best Circus at Melbourne Fringe 2018.

Please note that the performance is in English.
