Out of Chaos…
Gravity & Other Myths











Out Of Chaos… is the company’s boldest and most ambitious work yet. Hard-edged, throbbing, explosive acrobatics that reference birth, death and primordial physics collide with intimate verbal confessions and insights into what it feels like to be on stage in real time… Complete with sweaty armpits.

By exposing the inner workings of the world-class acrobats they unveil the magic that is Gravity & Other Myths most precious commodity. Genuine human connection between each other and the audience.

At its conceptual center it is a story of how things come together: People, planets and plans. Audience, performer, sound and light. The Thoughts that shape us and in turn define how we make sense of inner and outer worlds.

The piece moves with agility between chaotic creation stories and a seemingly ordered understanding of the here and now, all the while hinting at the strange space between knowing and contemplating the mortal significance.
