Driftwood (Australia)

Thursday 11th-Friday 12th October 2018

In this colourful and turbulent concoction of pure joy and intimacy, watch Casus Circus bring a blank canvas to life and revel in our innate need for human contact.

This is a circus show that won’t let you forget what it is to be human, and in a moment of danger, how a grasping hold can be survival.

The unique acrobatic shapes signature to Casus abound in this journey of explosive encounters, hidden looks, and humorous discoveries.

Accompany Casus as we surge forward... together!
