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 a spectacular exploration of circus that grapples with the relationship between order and chaos in our lives. From subatomic particle to exploding supernova. Swirling genetic sequence, to the chaos of the family dining table. It’s circus that interrogates the physical and dramatic tensions embedded in human group behavior.

Prepare for physicality unprecedented in new circus – primal, physical, soulful – and, through what they delightfully dub “hyper-proximity”, an even stronger connection to the audience than ever before. Bring the family for an unforgettable experience.
