WINNER: Total Theatre Award (Circus), Edinburgh Fringe 2018
Casting Off - a wonderful gravity-defying, cross-generational show that will inspire anyone from birth to infinity.
Casting off stereotypes, three generations of dynamic women tumble, talk, fly, and balance precariously. This is inter-generational circus with lots to say, where the personal is political, the furious is funny, and the acrobatics are downright dangerous. A disarming, hilarious show about living on the edge and talking about it.
Self-directed, hand-knitted, and honouring the life events that get in the way of work, Casting Off is a theatrical circus experience that celebrates thoughtful, strong, and resilient individuals. A joyous accumulation of moments that shine a light on women relating to each other in playful, fruitful relationships. Flipping, climbing and flying to a haunting soundscape of the many disparate texts (lists, poems, conversations, melodies, arguments and biographies) that embody each day.
Casting Off is non-narrative circus with words that’s easier done than said.
Warning: Contains mild coarse language, adult themes, abortion
Took their audience on a ride as absurd as it was touching... air-piercing acrobatics.
