Gravity & Other Myths / Australia

Gravity and Other Myths has become a prolific creator of world-pleasing acrobatic works that are at once intimate and epic, sweaty and sexy, utterly charming and contagiously joyful. These are not only extraordinary performers. These are extraordinary people.

The company’s first show to take the world by storm was (and is) A SIMPLE SPACE. Breathtaking acrobatics, unparalleled energy and irresistible charm made this Australian company famous. With their next effort BACKBONE, these extra special artists stretched the limits of the human body in a way unthinkable to ordinary mortals.

GOM’s latest work, OUT OF CHAOS…, is the company’s boldest and most ambitious work yet. Hard-edged, throbbing, explosive acrobatics that reference birth, death and primordial physics collide with intimate verbal confessions and insights into what it feels like to be on stage in real time…complete with sweaty armpits. It is a spectacular exploration of circus that grapples with the relationship between order and chaos in our lives.
