WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Brisbane-based circus troupe. Renowned for creating delicately human circus, Casus Circus' premier work Knee Deep is an international sensation. Performed in over 15 countries in 2015 alone, Knee Deep won international accolades including Best Circus & Physical Theatre 2016 Adelaide Fringe and Best Circus & Physical Theatre Avignon 2015. On the success of Knee Deep Casus have grown to an established touring company of nine acrobats, making up two casts which tour internationally with the shows Knee Deep, Tolu and Driftwood. Originating in Brisbane Australia, the three co-founders remain company members and close friends. Their home-town values of humanity, friendship and connection flow throughout the company and their performances. It is this that forms the backbone of Casus' signature style
As we drift along the current of life we are shaped by the humans we encounter. The stories of our loved ones, our enemies and complete strangers guide us and determine the person we become. In this colourful and turbulent concoction of pure joy and intimacy, watch Casus bring a blank canvas to life and revel in our innate need for human contact. This is a circus show that does not let you forget that to feel is to be human and in a moment of danger, a grasping hold is survival. Unique acrobatic shapes, signature to Casus, abound in this journey of explosive encounters, hidden looks, and humorous discoveries. Accompany Casus as we surge forward... Together.
