Contemporary circus sensation Casus.

‘Outrageously impressive… This is circus that makes your lungs seize’ The List

‘Stripped-back circus skills that are both breathtakingly beautiful and eye-wateringly difficult’ The Scotsman

Heading the iconic Salon Perdu Spiegeltent is the latest show from Casus – one of Australia’s most exciting contemporary circus companies, in residence for three nights.

Casus – a leader in contemporary, acrobatics-based circus – offer a masterclass in gymnastic skill, elevating circus to a form of silent theatre set to music. Casus’ earlier show Knee Deep (Canterbury Festival 2013) became an international sensation after being performed in more than 15 countries in 2015 alone, winning international accolades including Best Circus & Physical Theatre 2016 Adelaide Fringe and Best Circus & Physical Theatre Avignon 2015.

On the success of Knee Deep, Casus has grown into an established touring company, five of whom perform Driftwood. Expect to see breathtaking aerial work, body-balancing, awesome human tableaux and joyful use of hula hoops – witty, clever and above all superbly physical.
