Nelson Arts Festival presents FINDING THE SILENCE
Presented by Casus Circus, the company that brought Knee Deep to Nelson in 2013.
On a search for silence, the absence of noise is elusive, barely tangible, and as Casus discover, the search is liquid, much like the acrobatics that it yields.
Silence is a very personal thing – perhaps a brief moment of quiet focus, clarity and calm. We all desire it, often we crave it, but how do we even know where to look for it?
Casus explore this by diving headfirst into the depths of their own hearts and minds in an incredible and unique approach to both acrobatics and theatre; bodies combine and break away to reveal a truth that is at once beautiful and frightening, powerful and touching.
By testing their individual vulnerabilities, emotions and real fears, Casus truly go on a search to find the absence of noise.
“Romantic, cheeky, nostalgic, sexy, powerful” BRISBANE FESTIVAL
“Visually spectacular, physically stunning” STAGE WHISPERS
“This is not the sort of circus that desperately seeks applause or is crystal studded in razzmatazz. Instead it gets to the heart of circus’s origins and explores what the body is capable of.” 2012 FEST MAG
