Casting off stereotypes, three generations of dynamic women tumble, talk, fly, and balance precariously; where the personal is political, the furious is funny, and the acrobatics are downright dangerous.
Casting Off is a disarming and hilarious show about living on the edge and talking about it. Self-directed, hand-knitted, and honouring the life events that get in the way of work, Casting Off is a theatrical circus experience that celebrates thoughtful, strong and resilient individuals. A joyous accumulation of moments that shine a light on women relating to each other in playful, fruitful relationships, watch these artists flip, climb and fly to a soundscape of the many disparate texts (lists, poems, conversations, melodies, arguments and biographies) that embody each day. Casting Off is non-narrative circus with words, that is easier done than said.
“Took their audience on a ride as absurd as it was touching… air-piercing acrobatics.” Theatrepress.com
