CIRCFest Meanjin

Intergenerational circus with lots to say: the personal is political, fury is fun and the acrobatics downright dangerous – especially when life gets in the way.

Casting Off stereotypes, these dynamic Australian women tumble, talk, fly, and balance precariously. 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.


We take the safety of our patrons, staff and artists seriously.

A COVID Safe Plan is in place for Brisbane Powerhouse.

If you are displaying symptoms of COVID-19 or are feeling unwell, please stay home. 

Detailed information regarding your safe experience and conditions of entry can be found here.

If you have any questions, please contact Box Office on 07 3358 8600.


A Good Catch makes arthouse circus with a devising and democratic process. They experiment with circus structures with a feminist tone and a proactive attitude. They formed in 2017 creating Bridges for the Mullumbimby Circus Festival followed by Casting Off for the Circus Oz Sidesault at the Melba experimental circus festival. Casting Off has since performed at Edinburgh, Adelaide and Melbourne Fringe Festivals, Bondi Feast and WA Circus Festival. They find joy in each other’s strengths, challenges and weaknesses, and in support of new possibilities.

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

    This is the least showy and most breath-taking

    The 730 Review, 2018

  • ★★★★

    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, 2018

  • ★★★★

    the true meaning of what it's like to be fierce, formidable, and feisty as heck

    Weekend Notes, 2018

  • ★★★★

    an unpretentious and thoroughly engaging serving of intergenerational feminist circus that’s deservedly shortlisted for a Total Theatre Award
