Casting Off expired
Casting Off was at the Edinburgh Fringe festival in the Assembly Garden. Presented by Sharon Burgess Productions and A Good Catch. An all women, cross-generational show that challenges the conventions of circus and subverts expectations. Casting off stereotypes, three generations of dynamic women tumble, talk, fly, and balance precariously; 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 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. Performed and Created by Spenser Inwood, Sharon Gruenert and Debra Batton Melbourne based company A GooD Catch formed in 2017 with the aim to experiment with circus. They seek to nurture their own creative voice with a feminist tone and a pro-active attitude, re-inventing the collective approach to devised performance.
