The Trail & District Arts Council presents Casting Off by Australian intergenerational circus group A Good Catch on Friday, November 3 at 7:30 pm in The Bailey Theatre.

Casting Off does just that, throwing away stereotypes as these dynamic Australian women tumble, talk, and balance precariously. This joyful, witty and poignant circus show is a refreshing and uplifting conversation between three generations. This award-winning, family-friendly performance is Circus that makes you laugh and cry. Relaxed, personal and fantastically inappropriate, these powerhouse women win you over within minutes of hitting the stage.

“Casting Off is a joy: these three wonderful women have knitted together a truly extraordinary piece of feisty feminist circus that is fabulously funny to boot!” – Total Theatre.

A Good Catch circus group makes arthouse circus as they experiment with circus structures with a feminist tone and a proactive attitude. Their show Casting Off has toured the festival circuit and has won three fringe awards including The BankSA Best Circus & Physical Theatre Award in Adelaide 2019, The Total Theatre & Jacksons Lane Award for Best Circus at Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2018, and Best Circus at Melbourne Fringe 2018.
