International circus sensation, renowned for their aesthetic of delicately human circus, Casus bring their thrilling new show Driftwood to London for the first time, following rave reviews at the 2016 Edinburgh Festival Fringe. Driftwood will run for a limited season, from 4 May – 4 June, with press night on Friday 5 May.
As we drift along the current of life we are shaped by the humans we encounter. The stories of our loved ones, our enemies and complete strangers guide us and determine the person we become. In this colourful and turbulent concoction of pure joy and intimacy, watch Casus bring a blank canvas to life and revel in our innate need for human contact.
This is a circus show that does not let you forget that to feel is to be human and in a moment of danger, a grasping hold is survival. Unique acrobatic shapes, signature to Casus, abound in this journey of explosive encounters, hidden looks, and humorous discoveries. Accompany Casus as we surge forward… Together.
The company of Driftwood includes Johnny Brown, Jon Bonaventura, Shannon Vitali, Sarah McDougall and David Trappes.
Knee Deep, the previous show from Casus, won international accolades including Best Circus & Physical Theatre at the Adelaide Fringe Awards 2016, and was described as ‘awe-inspiring’ by the Guardian’s Lyn Gardner.
