ED2012 Physical Review: Knee Deep (Casus and Assembly)

ED2012 5/5 Reviews ED2012 Physical Reviews

“Australia’s hottest new circus company”, Casus and Assembly, defy gravity and, indeed, expectation with this mesmerising choreography of the limbs. But if circus is some loud, garish freakshow then this isn’t circus. Watch them form human paper chains whilst suspended from aerial silks, catch them swinging from a static trapeze and maintain balances from the most unlikely points of contact – you couldn’t image something as daring as this. This choreography of the limbs is a performance spectacular if ever there was one, yet it is also modestly contained and understated. These performers are athletic, artistic, even poetic, with their abundance of creative energy. Whoop, cheer and gasp your way through it – spectator satisfaction guaranteed.

Assembly George Square, 2-26 Aug (not 13, 20), 7.35pm.
