About this event

Chasing Smoke is an evocative and triumphant performance by Australia's only Indigenous contemporary circus ensemble.

Both playful and brave, Chasing Smoke is the spark that ignites the question 'Who am I?', when you have 65,000 years of history to sift through in search of an answer.

Take a glimpse into the world's oldest living culture told through the artform of contemporary circus.

A dynamic, fast-moving and touching performance, Chasing Smoke stokes the fires of identity, challenge and success for a unique cohort of young Australians.

WINNER of the 2017 Green Room Awards for Best Contemporary Circus.

Chasing Smoke was made possible and created through the Circus Oz BLAKflip Program.

"A sparkling, dynamic, funny and insightful circus sensation."

Presented by:
Casus Circus & Cluster Arts

Casus Circus is recognised as a leader in contemporary circus on the international stage.

Casus Circus performances are rich in human connection, integrity, cultural diversity and precise, intelligent choreography. Acrobats fill the stage with momentum and stillness, with strength and fragility, and overwhelm audiences with breathless emotion that often leads to a silent theatre throughout the performance – followed by a standing ovation at the end.

Off stage, Casus actively work to maintain their human connections through community engagement, education, and collaboration alongside their performance works.
