Hip-hop and contemporary circus collide in a new theatre concept by Brisbane’s Casus Circus at Adelaide Fringe.
From internationally acclaimed Casus Circus Director Natano Fa’anana comes a new physical theatre concept that remixes contemporary circus with street dance in a breathtaking show of human body language.
Teaming up with B-boys and B-girls from Brisbane urban dance studio Mad Dance House, Collision combines Casus Circus’ signature combination of ground-breaking acrobatics and physical poetry with the rhythm, swagger, and moves of street dance culture.
True to the Casus Circus spirit, Collision is all about flipping stereotypes. It’s not your usual dance battle between contemporary circus and hip-hop. Rather, it’s an experimental amalgamation of two parallel arts deeply concerned with human expression.
Collision crafts beautiful contrasts: of strength and fragility, of masculinity and femininity, of subtle manoeuvres and explosive stunts. Expect to see popping and locking, male contortionists, extraordinary strongwomen, and energetic urban dance all in the same act. The result is an action-packed theatre fusion that bends genres backwards and reminds audiences of the undeniably visceral communicative ability of the human body.
Collision is showing at Tandanya from February 24 until the 28. Grab your tickets HERE.
