Backbone by Gravity and Other Myths
Adelaide’s acrobatic sensations Gravity and Other Myths have rocketed to stellar acclaim with a series of disarmingly accomplished ensemble work.
Staged with a deceptively DIY aesthetic and dispensing with trickery and distraction, this is circus that goes straight for the jugular.
Backbone is the culmination of all that’s gone before. A celebration of human connectedness and the meaning of strength, its athletic appeal is combined with a conceptual brilliance that elevates it to a new level.
Sexy but sincere, raw yet utterly disciplined, Backbone is proof you can’t do the impossible without a little sweat.
When: Friday 16th and Sat 17th February 2018
Where: Powerhouse Theatre, Brisbane Powerhouse
Showing as part of the Australian Performing Arts Market (APAM) 2018.
