About the Show
Circus feats, stand-up and sketch comedy, dance and personal monologue come together for one unique glimpse into the world’s oldest living culture.
Tumbling through life while juggling their responsibilities in an age where culture, tradition, land and identity are under threat, the performers of Chasing Smoke will capture your imagination as they paint the world that was, that is and that could be.
Directed by Samoan-Australian director Natano Fa’anana (Polytoxic, Briefs, Casus Circus), an unconventional storyteller who chooses to learn from individuals rather than institutions, Chasing Smokewill not only challenge, amaze and entertain you, but also showcase the next generation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander circus legends.
The spark that ignites the question ‘Who am I?’ flickers inside us, but only some have the courage to pursue the answer.
Performance and post-show talk on Sat 11 Aug 2pm will be Auslan sign interpreted
