Casting Off

A Good Catch

Three generations recast their narrative.

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.

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.

“A multi-faceted gem of a spectacle.” Edinburgh Festivals magazine

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.

With their scheduled 2020 performances cancelled back in 2020, we are so delighted to welcome the company back for Autumn 2023.

They find joy in each other’s strengths, challenges and weaknesses, and in support of new possibilities.

Casting Off is a joy: these three wonderful women have knitted together a truly extraordinary piece of feisty feminist circus that is fabulously funny to boot!” ​ Total Theatre
