GLASSHOUSE PORT MACQUARIE PRESENTS
GRAVITY & OTHER MYTHS: backbone
Part of 2022 GLASSHOUSE SELECT Theatre Program
The internationally renowned circus company, Gravity and Other Myths, takes the concept and perception of strength and (literally) tosses it into the air.
In this “dazzling and warm hearted” performance (The Independent), individual and collective resilience is tested as the company tumble, backflip and walk across each other’s heads – Backbone explores the limits of emotional and physical endurance.
Winner of the Australian Dance Award (2018) for Outstanding Achievement in Physical Theatre, this is a stripped-back, raw showcase of human ability and connection.
With a powerful live soundtrack and beautiful lighting design, expect “a genre-defying, thought-provoking, visual extravaganza…so intensely beautiful it makes you proud to be human.” (InDaily)
“A glorious flow of action and reaction ... The acrobatics are eloquent and sensational, full of original twists that spell out a new language”
- The Advertiser
“Circus, as you’ve never seen it before, pushed to its conceptual and cerebral limits”
“The excitement of circus at its best combined with the grace and choreographic line of dance, and the magical undercurrents of good theatre”
- The Sydney Morning Herald
