The internationally renowned circus company, Gravity and Other Myths, takes the concept and perception of strength and (literally) tosses it into the air. In this dazzling and warm-hearted performance, Backbone explores the limits of emotional and physical endurance. You will be mesmerised as the company tumbles, backflips and walks across each other’s heads – in supreme enthralling tests of individual and collective strength.

Winner of the Australian Dance Award (2018) for Outstanding Achievement in Physical Theatre, this is a stripped-back, raw showcase of human ability and connection.

With a powerful live soundtrack and beautiful lighting design, expect ‘a genre-defying, thought-provoking, visual extravaganza...

Warnings: haze and loud music.

Backbone has been assisted by the Australian Government’s Major Festivals Initiative in association with the Confederation of Australian International Arts Festivals Inc., Commissioned by Adelaide Festival and Sydney Festival, co-produced by Melbourne Festival.
