New Brisbane's CASUS Comes to the  Famous Spiegeltent, 5-17 March

New Brisbane contemporary company Casus will bring their "breathtaking and fragile display of skills" to The Famous Spiegeltent for a two-week season from Tuesday March 5. The troupe will lift each other up by the jaw alone, create four person towers and use an egg to demonstrate their careful artistry showcasing the incredible strength and fragility of the human body.

Formed in 2011, Casus members boast the finest circus pedigree in the country, with former Circa and Flying Fruit Fly performers Emma Serjeant, Jesse Scott and Lachlan McAulay joining forces with Polytoxic's Natano Fa'anana (Briefs), to create stunningly beautiful displays of skill.

Their debut work, Knee Deep, which has played at the Adelaide and Edinburgh Fringe Festivals, and earned them a five-star review in The Guardian, is an inventive blend of circus, combining traditional and contemporary circus techniques.

Using hard acrobatics, they push their bodies to the limit, stomping on stereotypical gender roles as female and male performers push the boundaries of strength and performance.

Knee Deep journeys through moments of raw discovery, fleeting relationships and unexpected bonds giving new purpose and meaning to inanimate objects and the human body itself.
