A Gravity & Other Myths Production


In less than a decade, Australian acrobatic sensation Gravity & Other Myths (GOM) have rocketed to stellar international acclaim with a series of disarmingly accomplished ensemble works. A high-octane spree of physical virtuosity featuring ten extraordinary performers and a live band on stage, Backbone tests the limits of strength: physical, emotional, individual and collective.

Staged with a deceptively DIY aesthetic, this is circus that goes straight for the jugular. Directed by Darcy Grant, 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.
