Brisbane Festival presents



19 - 24 Sept | The Courier-Mail Magic Mirrors Spiegeltent




Casus Circus (AUS)

"Breathtaking sounds like a buzzword, so let's just say I kept forgetting to breathe; eyes wide, mouth agape, in complete awe." The Advertiser

Brisbane’s world-beating Casus Circus present their dazzling new work.

Casus have travelled worldwide with their impossible feats of brute strength, mesmerising acrobatics and aerial stunts, gathering stellar reviews at the Edinburgh Festival and winning Best Circus at Festival d’Avignon.

As we drift through life we are shaped by those we encounter. The stories of our loved ones, our enemies and complete strangers guide us and determine the person we become.

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

This show reminds us that to feel is to be human and – in a moment of danger – a grasping hold is survival.

This is a journey of explosive encounters, hidden looks, and humorous discoveries.
