The Circus is Back
Live from the circus capitol of the world, Australia’s Gravity & Other Myths offers the future of acrobatics. High-flying performers are pushed to their physical limits without reserve, breaking down their usual guards and introducing the reality of failure and weakness. Featuring seven acrobats supported by driving live percussion, their recent hit, A Simple Space, is simultaneously raw, frantic, delicate, and presented so intimately that you can feel the heat, hear every breath, and be immersed in every moment.
Formed in 2009, Gravity & Other Myths is an internationally renowned circus company pushing the boundaries of contemporary circus. It has rocketed to stellar acclaim utilizing an honest approach to performance, to create shows with a focus on human connection and acrobatic virtuosity. They have been honored with the Dance Award 2015 for Best Physical Theatre and the Green Room Award 2015 for Outstanding Contemporary Circus, among others.
If you haven’t seen Gravity & Other Myths yet, you must. It is so much fun.
