PHYSICAL THEATRE OR CIRCUS OR PUPPETRY
An earthly reminder of what it is to be human.
In this colourful and turbulent concoction of pure joy and intimacy, Casus bring a blank canvas to life revealing our innate need for human contact.
Driftwood 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. The unique acrobatic shapes that have become the Casus signature abound in this dazzling journey of explosive encounters, hidden looks and humorous discoveries.

Casus is recognised internationally as a leader in contemporary circus. Renowned for a delicately human circus aesthetic, the group’s premier work, the international sensation Knee Deep,led to the establishment of a touring company of ten acrobats who regularly perform around the world.
Casus Circus shows are rich in human connection, integrity, cultural diversity and precise, intelligent choreography. Acrobats fill the stage with momentum and stillness, with strength and fragility, overwhelming audiences with breathless emotion that often leads to a silent theatre throughout the performance followed by a standing ovation at the end.
