Backbone

Gravity & Other Myths er et sirkus- og fysisk teater-kompani fra Australia.

Hva er styrke? Hvor kommer det fra? Hvordan måles det? Her undersøkes hele konseptet rundt styrke.

Forestillingen er en feiring av samhold som utfordrer styrkens grenser. Fysisk, mentalt, individuelt og kollektivt. Det er både vakkert og komisk, og ja, det er lov å klappe underveis.

I Backbone byr Gravity & Other Myths på live musikk og 10 akrobater på scenen.

 A glorious flow of action and reaction … The acrobatics are eloquent and sensational, full of original twists that spell out a new language.

Magnetic world premiere, a perfect combination of fluidity, mettle and danger … The sheer strength of body and character needed to round out this frenzied performance demonstrates a discipline and camaraderie, rarely seen on stage. Simply a joy to watch.

– Limelight Magazine ★★★★★

 

Circus, as you’ve never seen it before, pushed to its conceptual and cerebral limits. A genre-defying, thought-provoking, visual extravaganza … so intensely beautiful it makes you proud to be human.

The excitement of circus at its best combined with the grace and choreographic line of dance, and the magical undercurrents of good theatre.
