Casting Off is intergenerational circus that will make you laugh and cry simultaneously! Casting off stereotypes, these dynamic Australian women tumble, talk, fly, and balance precariously. A disarming, hilarious show about living on the edge and how it’s easier done than said.
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. The three extraordinary women at the heart of Casting Off are – Debra Batton (60), Sharon Gruenert (42) and Spenser Inwood (30).
