Knee Deep — Casus Circus
Knee Deep invites the audience to re-imagine notions of limitation through the journey of four circus performers.
February 15, 2016
There's a wonderfully authentic innocence about the circus. The combination of childish comedy mixed with the professionalism of performers is a sure way to keep you enthused and entertained, even more so when you become involved in the performance concept. That's the case at Knee Deep, the long-running show from Casus. After impressing crowds around the world over the last four years, the Brisbane-based contemporary circus company is treating local audiences to the return of their acclaimed effort.
Knee Deep invites the audience 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. The circus' 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 to question your stance of limitation and boundary.
When was the last time you took a break from life's boring debacles? Jump on the fun bandwagon and brighten your grin with Casus's brilliant circus.
