BACKBONE

Gravity & Other Myths / Australia

Up close, sweaty, sexy, utterly charming, contagiously joyful. If you’ve seen them you know that Australia’s acrobatic troupe Gravity and Other Myths become your new best friends within minutes. But this is just a cunning screen for jaw-dropping virtuosity, witty, thought–provoking conceits and extraordinarily disciplined team work.

“With Backbone, Gravity & Other Myths has produced something so intensely beautiful it makes you proud to be human.” –InDaily Australia

This amazing, no-frills, DIY circus company’s last show A Simple Space took the world by storm. Now their brand new work, Backbone tosses around the perception of what strength is, where it comes from and how it is measured. This frenetic celebration of human interconnectedness tests the limits of strength: physical, emotional, individual and collective.

Duration: 80 minutes.  No intermission. All ages.
