DNA (Casus Circus and Cluster Arts)

By | Published on Thursday 8 August 2019

It’s always a treat to see Casus Circus, and this year’s show is no less mesmerising than its predecessors. Performed by a seven-strong team, ‘DNA’ focuses on the differences that bind us all together. Through graceful acrobatics and dance they explore their personalities and tell beautiful stories with their bodies. Their moves are lively and graceful, often belying the sheer physical strength required to achieve them, and are backed by a great soundtrack that always captures the right feel for each act. Featuring gravity-defying chairs, trapeze and aerial work, the show is full of a playfulness that brought smiles to the crowd’s faces, matching the performers who clearly relish every moment of what they’re doing.

Assembly George Square Gardens, until 25 Aug.
