Pushing the boundaries of contemporary circus 

Backbone is a new work by Gravity & Other Myths, an internationally renowned Australian company pushing the boundary of contemporary circus. 

A frenetic celebration of human interconnectedness, Backbone examines the various perceptions of what strength is, where it comes from and how it is measured. 

Sexy but sincere, raw yet utterly disciplined, Backbone is proof you can’t do the impossible without spending a little sweat. 

1hr 20mins (no interval) 
Suitable for ages 5+ 
Haze effect and loud music
