Circus

Chasing Smoke

Presented by Casus Circus and Cluster Arts in partnership with Brisbane Powerhouse

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 40,000 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.

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

This project has been supported by The Bridge, an initiative of Brisbane Powerhouse and Brisbane City Council.

IN REVIEW

The curtain call reminded us about diversity and the strength of culture, while reiterating that presumptions about identity are a mistake.
