Gravity & Other Myths
A Simple Space
Gravity & Other Myths is recognised as one of the most exciting circus ensembles in Australia, creating work that is highly physical, innovative and unique.
Simultaneously raw, frantic and delicate, seven skilled acrobats push their physical limits without
reserve. Supported by driving percussion, immersed in every moment, A Simple Space evokes real
responses in audiences, visceral rather than cerebral.
There’s no fine-tuning of performances with make-up, lighting and contrived theatrical overlay. Sitting
close to a stripped back stage, the audience feel the heat, see the sweat and hear every breath.
Armed with nothing more than brute strength and cat-like agility these acrobats break down their usual
guards, introducing the reality of possible failure and weakness. With nothing left to hide behind,
personal narratives shine through. This honesty is the essence of »A Simple Space«.
