Backbone - Gravity & Other Myths

Performance & Dance
Contemporary Dance


Circus company Gravity & Other Myths take a visceral ride to the edges of physical, cerebral and collective brawn in this UK premiere.

Experience a high-octane exploration of the limits of human strength from the acclaimed acrobatic troupe.

Australia's acrobatic sensations Gravity & Other Myths have rocketed to stellar acclaim with a series of ensemble works.

Staged with a deceptively DIY aesthetic and dispensing of trickery and distraction, this is circus that goes straight for the jugular and leaves no viewer unmoved.

Backbone is the culmination of all that’s gone before: a celebration of human connectedness and the meaning of strength.

Sexy but sincere, raw yet utterly disciplined, it’s proof you can’t do the impossible without a little sweat.

A perfect combination of fluidity, mettle and danger … Simply a joy to watch
Limelight Magazine
It has the excitement of circus at its best combined with the grace and choreographic line of dance, and the magical undercurrents of good theatre.
