Knee Deep
  • Friends Special Price Event

Knee Deep

Casus Circus, Australia

Thu 3 Jul 2014 7PM Main Auditorium // €18 / €14 conc / €10 children / Family of 4: €48

Casus is Australia's hottest new circus company featuring artists who have performed with CIRCA, Polytoxic, Legs on the Wall and Briefs Collective. Their debut work Knee Deep is an inventive blend of circus and modern media using traditional and contemporary circus techniques. It’s circus from the heart with astonishing skills and exquisite beauty from four performers at the top of their game.

This is a show about relationships in which the performers are constantly pulling each other up and pushing each other down. They try to stand tall by clambering on each other's shoulders, reaching the sky. But an egg dropped from a height into a bowl is a reminder that if they fall, these performers will smash too. Catastrophe - or at least scrambled eggs - is only a misjudged shift of weight or a mistimed balance away. There's nothing cracked about that or about this awe-inspiring show.

Duration 60 mins (no interval)

Early Bird: €12 (Book before 06 April 2014)

"Raw, modest and utterly astounding." **** Arts Hub, Melbourne Spiegeltent

"Utterly hypnotising." Zenobia Frost, Rave Magazine

"The crowd was in awe." Adelaide Now
