“This is a show in which every single minute counts.”

- The Guardian

Ah, those Australians! In a show where great strength meets the touching gentleness of four prodigy acrobats, it takes only a few bodies, games, a simple set, and a handful of accessories to keep us holding our breath for 60 minutes.

Unusual acrobatics, balancing acts on faces, feats that stretch the limits of what you’d think possible… Add to that a few eggs—to hold, not scramble—a good dose of charm and a pinch of madness, and you have all the ingredients that go into making Knee Deep so irresistible.

Both raw and full of finesse—and decidedly cool—Knee Deep has been making a splash around the world. Enter a world of Icelandic dream-pop and unforgettable jazz riffs to discover a show that will touch you with its simplicity and candour.

What beauty, what grace—what strength!

About Casus Circus

The performers behind the hyper-contemporary troupe Casus Circus are a mix of Australian phenoms. Most made their way here from the Flying Fruit Fly Circus—a renowned Australian circus school and troupe for young acrobats. Half worked with the internationally celebrated Circa company, which we’ve had the pleasure to welcome to TOHU’s stage many times over the past few years. And the final member was born in Samoa, from which he ran away at 30 to join the circus

Founded in 2011 in Brisbane, Casus Circus was born from a collaboration of different artists to create a one-of-a-kind experience. Knee Deep—the troupe’s first show—has been performed over 200 times since its inception, and garners tremendous success wherever it goes.

“An hour of inventive feats of strength and balance.”

- New York Times
