A Simple Space

From Gravity & Other Myths
Adelaide, Australia
 
 

The seven audacious acrobats of Gravity & Other Myths like to keep things simple. Who needs circus rigging, sparkly costumes or even shoes when you've got each other? Balancing, climbing and swinging on one another's heads, hands and shoulders, this talented, tight-knit troupe and their dynamic drummer saturate their stripped-down spectacle with high-energy athleticism. A SIMPLE SPACE is a down-to-earth and downright delightful display of human strength, breathtaking skill and cheeky, good-natured one-upmanship.

 
"A total triumph. A riveting show of the most incredible physical feats."The Guardian "A communal experience of team spirit, good-natured competition, and togetherness"The Circus Diaries "An awe-inspiring display of strength, skill and creativity" Adelaide Now

Getting to Know Gravity & Other Myths

Gravity & Other Myths is a force to be reckoned with. This down-to-earth ensemble from Down Under does contemporary circus differently with their pared down productions that prioritize physical feats of athleticism over production spectacle. Founded by a group of friends in 2009, the company places an importance on community and connection, whether by keeping audiences up-close (tip: sit on stage!) or supporting other emerging artists with microloans through the GOM Seedling Fund—when not physically supporting each other, of course.


Did You Know?

  • The founding members of Gravity & Other Myths formed close friendships while participating in youth circus together at Cirkidz, a circus school in Adelaide.
  • While some people run away to join the circus, the members of Gravity & Other Myths almost ran away from it. But when they caught the eye of an audience member with Edinburgh Festival Fringe connections, the company put their university degrees, including the likes of chemical engineering, on hold to tour.
  • What does it take to be an acrobat? About 8,320 hours! Growing up, the members of Gravity & Other Myths trained three to four times a week, for three to four hours each. Now, the performers split their time between performing, training and creating new shows.
