Presented by Casus, Australia's only Indigenous contemporary circus ensemble, The Women of Chasing Smoke, explores the world's oldest living culture, delving into 40,000 years of history and covering family, art and the power of women. It's an honest, evocative, playful and triumphant quest for identity that reflects on what has been — and what might yet be.

Directed by Samoan-Australian Natano Fa'anana, the show stars traditional dancer Pearl Thompson; Gudjala Kabulba woman Lara Croydon, a trapeze artist, juggler and storyteller; and Wakka Wakka woman Ally Humphris, a dancer, gymnast and circus artist who specialises in flying, hand balance and ground acrobatics.

The show will run on Friday, September 28 at 7.30pm, Saturday, September 29 at 3pm and 8.45pm and Sunday, September 30 at 5pm.
