The Art House Presents 
Gravity and Other Myths'

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.

It is set in the here and now. We won’t be transporting the audience to Verona. We are on a stage. In a theatre. In front of them!

Backbone is this amazing circus company’s third work and has been performed across 23 countries to an estimated audience of 160,000 people! Their last show A Simple Space achieved huge international success and has been performed more than 960 times at 210 festivals and theatres across 37 countries.

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

"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." InDaily

Backbone has been assisted by the Australian Government’s Major Festivals Initiative, through the Confederation of International Arts Festivals Inc. commissioned by Adelaide Festival, Melbourne Festival & Sydney Festival.
