Riverside presents Casus Circus
CHASING SMOKE


The spark that ignites the question “Who am I?” flickers inside us, but only some have the courage to pursue the answer. Chasing Smoke is a unique glimpse into the world’s oldest living culture told by Australia’s only Indigenous contemporary circus ensemble.

Tumbling through life while juggling our responsibilities in an age where culture, tradition, land and identity are under threat, these performers paint the world that was, is, and could be.

Featuring striking aerial and acrobatic floor work, intimate storytelling, sketch comedy and dance, this show will capture your students’ imaginations and take you on a powerful journey from the Dreamtime to the modern day.

FYI this production contains smoke haze. Recommended for ages 12+

From the Program Coordinator…

This show will make a beautiful NAIDOC Week excursion providing excellent insight into Aboriginal experiences in Australia. Through a style of circus that is mesmerising and artistic, Chasing Smoke represents Aboriginal culture and identity in all its diversity, giving us a more holistic look at Aboriginal Australia than we find in our history books.
