“Full of extraordinary skill… (an) awe-inspiring show” The Guardian
Knee Deep is a mesmerising show that will amaze and amuse all ages. Every minute counts as the four performers explore the boundaries of strength and fragility through acrobatics and aerial stunts full of extraordinary skill. Bodies are pushed and pulled, eggs are weighed and tested and walked on. Unlikely bonds are forged and acts of intimacy share space with thrilling physical feats. Precision, poise and playfulness are key to this pared down display of pure talent.
Casus are one of Australia’s leading circus companies. Renowned for their aesthetic of delicately human circus, their premier work Knee Deep is an international sensation and is now in its wildly successful 7th year.

Chapelfield Summer Circus, running from 11 to 15 July, is programmed by Lost in Translation Circus as part of Circus250.
CIrcus250 is a year-long nationwide celebration of 250 years of circus. In 1768 showman, entrepreneur and equestrian rider Philip Astley drew out a circle on an abandoned patch of land near London’s Waterloo and filled it with astounding physical acts. This spectacle was the world’s very first circus. All over the UK and Ireland there will be contemporary and traditional circuses, performances, exhibitions, concerts and events. The focus will fall on six designated ‘Cities of Circus’ with their long and proud history of ‘the greatest show on earth’. Norwich (together with Great Yarmouth) is one of the six alongside Bristol, Blackpool, Newcastle-under-Lyme, London and Belfast.
This event has been made possible thanks to funding from Norwich City Council, Arts Council England, Norwich Town Close Estate Charity, Geoffrey Watling Charity, Goodman Trust, Paul Bassham Charitable Trust, Snelling Charitable Trust, Charles Littlewood Hill Trust and The Ranworth Trust.
