Gravity And Other Myths Present BACKBONE

Gravity And Other Myths Present BACKBONESexy but sincere, raw yet utterly disciplined, Backbone is proof you can't do the impossible without a little sweat.

In less than a decade, Adelaide's acrobatic sensations Gravity & Other Myths (GOM) have rocketed to stellar acclaim with a series of disarmingly accomplished ensemble work, and now it's time for Brisbane audiences to discover why!

As part of the Australian Performing Arts Market (APAM) which runs 19 - 23 February GOM are bringing their exciting work Backbone to Brisbane Powerhouse.

Staged with a deceptively DIY aesthetic and dispensing with trickery and distraction, this is circus that goes straight for the jugular. Backbone is the culmination of all that's gone before. A celebration of human connectedness and the meaning of strength, its athletic appeal is combined with a conceptual brilliance that elevates it to a new level.

Formed in 2009 in Adelaide, the ensemble creates and directs their own work with emphasis on an honest approach to performance, moving away from traditional circus and theatre models, towards a fusion of acrobatic physical theatre. The Company continues to grow and evolve, pushing their physical and creative boundaries and striving for unique performance opportunities and meaningful community engagement.
