Australia’s physical theater/cirque is back!
Up close, sweaty, sexy, utterly charming and contagiously joyful. If you saw BACKBONE when they were last here, you’ll know that Adelaide’s own acrobatic troupe will become your new best friend within 15 minutes. This performance, Gravity & Other Myths, is just a cunning guise for jaw-dropping virtuosity, witty, thought-provoking conceits and extraordinarily disciplined teamwork. Limelight Magazine - "MAGNETIC... a perfect combination of fluidity, mettle and danger. Simply a joy to watch."
This amazing, no-frills, DIY circus company’s last show "A Simple Space" took the world by storm. Now their brand-new work "Backbone" (literally) tosses around the perception of what strength is, where it comes from and how it is measured. UK Express - "Cirque du Soleil with a fistful of grit"
This frenetic celebration of human interconnectedness tests the limits of strength: physical, emotional, individual and collective.
