Our Creations are a reflection of who we are, directors of performance art, and our eclectic voices and visions are informed by the creative stories that surround us.

Casus Creations aspires to push the boundaries of what is humanly possible and extends our family of acrobats to other cultures, dancers, poets, puppeteers, musicians and theatre makers.
