A Gravity & Other Myths Production

This performance has been postponed. New dates will be announced soon!

about the show

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.

Backbone is Gravity and Other Myth’s third work. Their latest show Out of Chaos, also directed by Darcy Grant, achieved huge international success and won the 2019 Helpmann Award for Best Physical Theatre.
