Australia's original all First Nations circus is coming to Gympie

Casus Circus is heading to the Pavilion on Saturday, 7 August at 4pm to perform their show Chasing Smoke.

The Casus Circus crew stomp, dance, flip and weave their message, showcasing a people not defeated by adversity, but instead celebrating survival, modern-day Aboriginality and pride.

The world’s oldest living civilisation is the life force that empowers the stories within Chasing Smoke and to illustrate 65,000 years of old-time ways through now-time circus.

The show has received rave reviews across Australia, including Kate Uren from the Adelaide Advertiser.

“This five-person act from Australia’s only indigenous circus troupe lives up to the hype with its exploration of what it means to be Aboriginal in modern Australia,” said Ms Uren.

“It splices moments of pathos — relaying the performers’ personal reflections of what their Aboriginality means to them — with laugh-out-loud stabs at stereotypes and historic segregation in Australia."

Tickets cost $38 for general admission and $33 for student/concession.

Chasing Smoke by Casus Circus is part of Gympie Regional Council’s RESET program, supported by the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland.

Spring is here and if you’re like me you’re chomping at the bit to get outside and get amongst the action. Whether its getting into your garden, meeting up with friends, or seeing a live show, you can do all of that and more this September in the Gympie region.

One community event that is taking place is the Valley Bees Open Day at the Pavilion, this Saturday from 9am. If you have ever wanted to try your hand at beekeeping but don’t know where to start, this event gives you the chance to watch demonstrations, ask questions and network with others in the community. 

If you can’t make it to the open day, the Valley Bees run information sessions and demonstrations at Landcare on the first Saturday of each month, and at Honey Bee Resort Kandanga on the third Saturday of the month.

Council’s arts and culture program RESET Gympie kicked off last month, and September’s line up of events has something for everyone.

On Saturday, 4 September from 6pm, Creative Arts Gympie region is opening their new creative space and gallery at 39 Monkland Street. This free event is a great opportunity to get together and celebrate an exciting new space dedicated to creatives in the Gympie region.

There are two great shows taking place at the Pavilion during RESET Gympie.
The lads from OKA will be performing on Friday, 10 September from 7pm to 9.30pm. This show combines an exciting blend of music that draws upon their indigenous connection to place and country to create their signature Australian earth sound.

On Saturday, 25 September from 7.30pm, Briefs Factory International will be presenting their amazing show Dirty Laundry. If you’re looking for a fun night of disco dancing, a little bit of circus and great comedy, this one is for you.

Finally, Story Vessels - ‘Boundaries’ Lines - Between - Apart will be on display at the Gympie Regional Gallery from Thursday, 9 September to Saturday, 2 October. This amazing exhibition explores the concept of how society’s perception of ‘boundaries’ has shifted since COVID-19.
