Jaw dropping feats of agility and adroitness - Physical Theatre at Brighton Festival and Fringe 2013

Rosie Davis, Guest Blogger and fellow Fringer has returned to share her love of physical theatre and recommend a few shows to watch.
 ~  The Brighton Festival and Fringe have included a spectacular array of physical theatre in their programmes.  Here are the top four shows that will leave your jaw dropping.  
Knee Deep - by Casus

TONIGHT 18 May 2.30pm and 7.30pm at Theatre Royal

Casus are a Brisbane based circus company that use their bodies, physical strengths and limitations to present a show that is receiving praise from critics across the international media. The company formed in 2011 and the four performers (Emma Serjeant, Jesse Scott, Natano Fa’anana and Lachlan McAulay) are highly acclaimed in their own right. This is a sensitive, emotional and humorous piece that uses the rawness of their own bodies and the connection between each other to capture the audience. Expect stunning choreography using silks, trapeze and some mind-boggling moments using eggs, a nail and a hammer!       

£10/£15/£17.50/£20, Under 16s half price - Festival Standby £10

Bad Taste Company - Faust
FREE at BHASVIC lower car park, TONIGHT 8pm AND
TOMORROW NIGHT 19 May at Jubilee Square 8pm

This is an outdoor event that will give all ages the chance to see highly acclaimed physical theatre for free. Faust is Goethe’s tragic play set during the Speakeasy era of the 1920s when drinking, gambling and womanising was abundant, with Faust manipulated into a deal with the devil. The play is told using flaming cocktails, burning boxing rings, breakdancing, Lindy Hop, Charleston and big-band music.

NoFit State - Bianco


When the Brighton Fringe announced that NoFit State were returning as part of their programme to the big top, there were many cheers that filled many rooms. You may remember NoFit State for their show Barricade at last year’s Brighton Festival, but now they return to offer a physical spectacular with Bianco. Watch performers fall from above you and see them soar across the big top using a multitude of circus apparatus. The show is sound tracked by a live band while a world class cast reinvents circus performance, featuring original sets and storylines.
