This is the year for all things tumbling, flying, jumping, crawling or leaping. The incredible crew at the legendary Legs On The Wall company have teamed up with Fringe to transform their amazing Red Box facility in Lilyfield into a circus hub for this year’s festival. Not only will there be an amazing array of fringe shows, a pop-up courtyard bar and workshops but Legs’ Artistic Director and Fringe Ambassador Joshua Thomson has curated a program of circus acts from around the country to headline at the Hub.
Direct from Darwin Festival THE WOMEN OF CHASING SMOKE by CASUS heads down from the NT for a very special Sydney Fringe director's cut version of the show.
The Women of Chasing Smoke is an evocative and triumphant performance by Australia's only indigenous contemporary circus ensemble. Both playful and brave, Chasing Smoke is the spark that ignites the question 'Who am I?', when you have 40,000 years of history to sift through in search of an answer.
Take a glimpse into the world's oldest living culture told through the art form of contemporary circus. A dynamic, fast-moving and touching performance, The Woman of Chasing Smoke stokes the fires of identity, challenge and success for a unique cohort of young Australians.
