The New Victory Theater Presents
Award-Winning Australian Contemporary Circus Company
Makes U.S. Premiere March 21 – March 30
What happens when you bring an award-winning Australian Contemporary Circus? Pure magic! My family and I had the pleasure of catching Knee Deep ay New York’s New Victory Theater Friday night. My 8-year-old proclaimed on train ride home, “That was the best show I have ever seen in my life!” I have to admit he has been to quite a few show so this is no joke when he says it was the best. Personally, I didn’t want it to end. Once again I was amazed at the strength and grace of the human body. These performers are true artists combining music, comedy and acrobatic feats that leave you wanting more. A true team effort based on trust and mastery. I highly recommend catching this show while you can. Plus, the New Victory Theater is kid friendly with an amazing staff and booster seats . A perfect place to introduce your children to theater.
More About The Show:
Casus, Australia’s hottest new contemporary circus company, makes its U.S. premiere at the off-Broadway New Victory Theater with KNEE DEEP from March 21 – 30. Tinged with humor and immersed in cool, KNEE DEEP is a mesmerizing mix of acrobatic adagios, aerial feats and astonishing individual acts that explore the beautiful and delicate balance between human resilience and fragility.
In KNEE DEEP, the four members of Casus (Emma Serjeant, Jesse Scott, Natano Fa’anana and Lachaln McAulay) challenge human strength and agility while demonstrating the emotional capacity of the body’s physical language. Every moment counts during this hour-long show as the talented quartet flows from hand-to-hand acrobatics to silks and trapeze in a lyrical amalgam of circus, theater and music. Aided by little more than an evocative score, an onstage camera, live projection and a surprising use of eggs, KNEE DEEP keeps the performers and acts at the forefront, revealing not only the sheer skill and fortitude of the cast, but also their graceful humanity in this hypnotizing circus experience.
