Gravity & Other Myths  



World Premiere March 2017, Adelaide

Backbone examines the various perceptions of what strength is, where it comes from and how it is measured. This frenetic celebration of human interconnectedness will test the limits of strength: physical, emotional, individual and collective.

Backbone is this amazing circus company’s third work. Their last show A Simple Space has achieved huge international success and has been performed more than 350 times at 68 festivals and theatres across 18 countries.
