Four performers explore the boundaries of strength and tenderness. Bodies are pushed and pulled, weighed and tested, probing the limits of both physicality and feeling.
In Knee Deep, unlikely bonds are forged and acts of intimacy co-habit space with thrilling physical feats, as the audience is invited to re-imagine notions of limitation. Throughout this journey, the artists demonstrate that delicacy does not necessarily equate to fragility, although it is often a fine line to tread.
"This quartet of performers test the very limits of the human body in a show in which the eggshell – a structure that is both incredibly tough and yet remarkably delicate – becomes a compelling motif.
Many circus shows build towards wow-factor moments, but in this piece every single minute counts.
A truly awe-inspiring show." Lynn Gardener - The Guardian
