Casting Off

After an award winning season at Edinburgh Fringe in 2018, Casting Off is coming to Perth as part of the Fringe World 2020 season.

Casting Off is an all-women, cross-generational show that challenges the conventions of circus and subverts expectations.  As they cast off conformist stereotypes, three generations of dynamic women tumble, talk, fly and balance precariously in an absorbing performance where the personal is political, the furious is funny, and the acrobatics are downright dangerous.  

Self-directed, hand-knitted, and honouring the life events that get in the way of work, Casting Off is a joyous accumulation of moments that shine a light on women relating to each other in playful, fruitful relationships.  It’s a disarming, hilarious show about living on the edge and talking about it.
