CASUS: Knee Deep
Having wowed the crowds at the Adelaide Fringe Festival, Brisbane’s new contemporary circus company Casus treat local audiences to their stunning premiere work, Knee Deep.
Four performers explore the boundaries of strength and tenderness. Bodies are pushed and pulled, weighed and tested, probing the limits of both physicality and feeling.
In Knee Deep, unlikely bonds are forged and acts of intimacy co-habit space with thrilling physical feats,
as the audience is invited to re-imagine notions of limitation. Throughout this journey, the artists demonstrate that delicacy does not necessarily equate to fragility, although it is often a fine line to tread.
Casus combines the talents of former Circa and The Flying Fruit-Fly Circus performers Emma Serjeant, Jesse Scott and Lachlan McAulay, with Polytoxic’s Natano Fa’anana (Briefs) to create a bold and captivating performance style of breathtaking and beautiful displays of skill.
