Casting Off

A Good Catch Circus heads to Summerside—Oct 14

A Good Catch Circus is bringing their show Casting Off to Harbourfront Theatre on October 14 at 7:30 pm.

Dynamic and gutsy with an abundance of absurdity, Casting Off is circus-as-conversation that challenges convention and topples expectation.

Casting off stereotypes, three generations of spirited women talk, tumble, fly, and balance precariously. The personal is political, the furious is funny, and the acrobatics are dangerous. Self-directed and honouring the life events that get in the way of work, Casting Off is an accumulation of moments that shine a light on women in a playful, fruitful and radical relationship.

Monologues, melodies, arguments and chit-chat infiltrate acrobatics with philosophical charm. Always intimate and a little bit improvised.

A Good Catch cultivates creativity through an embodied feminist practice based on three principles: to disagree; to seek understanding; and to be willing to change with new knowledge. Their work is designed to provoke conversation amongst the collaborators, the artists they engage with and audiences.

Tickets can be purchased online at, via phone at 888-2500, or in-person at Harbourfront’s box office, 124 Heather Moyse Drive, Summerside.
