Casting Off is a hilarious circus show with a lot to say: the personal is political, fury is fun and the acrobatics downright dangerous - especially when life gets in the way.  Casting Off stereotypes, three dynamic intergenerational women tumble, talk, fly and precariously balance.

A disarming, hilarious show about living on the edge, and talking about it; and how it's easier done than said!  Circus that makes you laugh and cry simultaneously!  Relaxed, personal and fantastically inappropriate.

Family friendly.  No Photography and filming prohibited.



A Good Catch formed in 2017, devising arthouse circus and experimenting with circus with a proactive attitude and feminist tone.  They find joy in each other's strengths, challenges and weaknesses, and in support of new possibilities.

A Good Catch created Casting Off  for Circus Oz Sidesault at the Melba experimental circus festival.   Casting Off has since performed at Edinburgh, Adelaide and Melbourne Fringe Festivals, Bondi Feast and the WA Circus Festival.  

Casting Off has won three fringe awards including The BankSA Best Circus & Physical Theatre Award - Adelaide 2019, The Total Theatre & Jacksons Lane Award for Best Circus at Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2018 and Best Circus at Melbourne Fringe 2018.


"This is a unique piece of artistic work and well worth the dive into something you've never seen before." ***** Jane Durbridge, Sam About Town

"Casting Off has just about everything you could hope for.  It is laugh-out-loud funny.  It is motivational.  It is intelligent.  And, with mind-blowing trapeze stunts, it is testament to what the human body can do."  Edinburgh Festivals Magazine
