After a sell out run at the 2012 Edinburgh Fringe Festival - KNEE DEEP comes to London's Riverside Studios


FOLLOWING A CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED AND SELL OUT RUN AT THE 2012 EDINBURGH FRINGE FESTIVAL 

ASSEMBLY, RIVERSIDE STUDIOS AND MARSHALL CORDELL PRESENT 
KNEE DEEP 

PERFORMED BY AUSTRALIA’S HOTTEST NEW CIRCUS GROUP CASUS 

 RIVERSIDE STUDIOS FROM 28 MAY – 22 JUNE 2013 

Internationally renowned circus company, Casus, brings the humanity into circus through a breathtaking and fragile display of skills with Knee Deep. The show runs at Riverside Studios following a hit run at the 2012 Edinburgh Festival, where it was described as “awe inspiring” by The Guardian (***** star review). Knee Deep runs for a limited time only from 28 May to 22 June, with a special press performance on the 30 May.
Through bold, quirky and captivating performance the four members of Casus; Emma Serjeant, Jesse Scott, Natano Fa’anana and Lachlan McAulay bring a wealth of knowledge and experience into this innovative work, having previously performed extensively in Australia and around the world with C!RCA, Legs on the Wall, Polytoxic, and Briefs.
Knee Deep sees bodies pushed and pulled, weighed and tested, probing the limits of both physicality and feeling.
As unlikely bonds are forged and acts of intimacy cohabit space with thrilling physical feats, viewers are invited to re-imagine notions of our limitations. Using traditional and contemporary circus techniques, Knee Deep journeys through moments of raw discovery, fleeting relationships and unexpected bonds. Four artists reveal that delicacy does not necessarily equate to fragility, although it is often a fine line they tread.

Emma Serjeant commenced her circus training at the age of 20, graduating from the National Institute of Circus Arts in 2006 after three years of training under the internationally renowned trainer Guang Rong Lu. Emma began her career as a freelance soloist, focusing mainly on the skill of hand balancing. She then joined internationally renowned company C!rca, travelling extensively throughout the world.

Jesse Scott is a graduate of the Flying Fruit Fly Circus where he spent 11 years training and touring under a selection of the world’s greatest circus trainers. After graduating in 2004 he toured as a freelance performer working with companies including Legs on the Wall, A4 Circus Ensemble, Candy Stripe Circus and The Australian Opera. He has also performed with the Brewarrina Youth Circus and Flipside Circus. In 2008 Jesse became a full time ensemble member with Circa, Australia’s leading contemporary Circus. He worked with the company for three years touring internationally and performing at some of the world’s most prestigious venues. Some of his highlights with Circa include: two seasons at the Barbican Theatre, La Tohu in Montreal, opening and headlining the Montreal Circus Festival and Dublin International Theatre Festival, New York Skirball Centre for the Performing Arts, Galway International Arts Festival and The Sydney Opera House

Natano Fa’anana is the sixth member of Polytoxic Theatre Company, the co-creator and performer of Briefs: All Male Review and contemporary circus company, Casus.
Natano’s unconventional method of learning circus from individuals rather than schools or institutions has allowed him to create a unique style. His fresh approach to circus draws inspiration from his Pacific routes and his style is now recognised widely by the Circus community. Natano specializes in aerial acts but he is also a trainer for Brisbane-based companies Circa, Flipside Youth Circus and numerous community outreach arts organisations. He has been engaged as an arts worker for Human Ventures (formerly Speak Out), teaching circus skills, dance and music to children in some of Queensland’s most remote Indigenous communities.

Lachlan McAulay was also a member of Australia’s leading youth circus, The Flying Fruit Fly Circus - where he began his life of training, touring and performing throughout Australia and the world. In 2008 Lachlan was invited to Brisbane to create new work with Circa, Australia’s leading contemporary circus. Lachlan then became a full-time ensemble member, travelling to Australia and Europe, performing at the Galway International Arts Festival, the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and Oz Regional Festival.
