Winners Best Circus & Physical Theatre 2016.

From the award-winning company that brought you Knee Deep and Driftwood, Casus Circus presents DNA, a vibrant collision between traditional and contemporary dance and modern circus.

DNA invites you to explore the chasm that looms, and the bonds that bind, between these sister artforms.
What makes a dancer's cartwheel differ to that of an acrobat's? How does one make a partner dance with one half being an aerialist in the air and the other on the ground. Same-but-different, new-but-old, traditional vs contemporary. This visually stunning show features Casus Circus' signature style of 'heart in the mouth' moments, celebrating human connection, boundary-pushing skill, diversity and kinship.

Presented by:
Casus Circus and Cluster Arts

Casus is 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.

Cluster Arts works with extraordinary artists to bring work to the stage.
Cluster is an exciting and unique organisation that provides the essential ‘backend’ services to performing arts companies.
Based in Brisbane Australia, Cluster Arts has demonstrated experience in delivering work for major events and festivals as well as small and intimate gigs.
