'Casting off' A GOOD CATCH at the Melba

Wednesday 08 November 2017 - Saturday 11 November 2017

Casting Off is not your typical circus yarn.


We talk too much. What a great place to begin.

kNit is 29. Pearl is 40 and Slip is over 50 (but under 60). They differ markedly. Casting off stereotypes, these acrobats leap from heights, tumble around corners, support and catch each other in precarious positions while reveling in the possibilities.

They put their skills, words, lists, stunts, conversations, tricks, neuroses and politics together… while knitting their costumes.

Casting Off, performed by A GOOD CATCH, is non narrative circus with words. And It’s easier said than done. Or is it the other way around... Catch it from 8 to 11 November.

Wednesday, 8 November - 6:30

Thursday, 9 November - 6:30

Friday, 10 November - 6:30

Saturday, 11 November - 6:30


Adult: $27 (+BF)
