What's On

You & I
 

Casus Circus and Gasworks Arts Park present, as a part of the 2020 Midsumma Festival

You & I

International award-winning company Casus Circus come to Melbourne with their much anticipated and exclusive 2020 Midsumma Festival season.

An empowering hour of skill using high level acrobatics, magical trapeze, and dance, You & I is a celebration of identity and the loving relationship between two men. Casus Circus' most daring and intimate work to-date, You & I is an unashamedly authentic journey revealing a fresh narrative where gay stories are not consumed by tragedy, but filled with conviction and acceptance.

A recognised leader in contemporary circus, Casus Circus performances are rich in human connection, integrity, cultural diversity and precise, intelligent choreography. Renowned for their aesthetic, the company have toured nationally and internationally with their works Knee Deep, Chasing Smoke, You & I, Driftwood and DNA, and have won numerous accolades. Originating in Brisbane through co-founders Jesse Scott, Lachlan McAulay, and Natano Fa’anana, Casus Circus is an established company of 16 acrobats, comprised of three casts touring internationally.

Proudly partnering with Gasworks Arts Parks, You & I will be Casus Circus' Midsumma Festival debut season. Not to be missed!

This performance is proudly supported by Sofitel Melbourne on Collins and The Gasworks Foundation Patrons Fund.
