Gravity & 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. Their last show A Simple Space, achieved huge international success and has been performed more than 530 times at 76 festivals and theatres across 24 countries.
“MAGNETIC WORLD PREMIERE, A PERFECT COMBINATION OF FLUIDITY, METTLE AND DANGER.”
