Gravity & Other Myths | Australia

 

A raw, high-octane exploration of the limits of human strength from the acclaimed acrobatic troupe. Circus company Gravity & Other Myths take a sinewy ride to the edges of physical, cerebral and collective brawn in this visceral performance of physical discipline and virtuosity, directed by Darcy Grant with set and lighting design by Geoff Cobham.

Nominated for three Helpmann Awards (Best Lighting Design, Best Choreography, Best New Australian Work).

Make a night of it! Add a Festival Feast at The Emporium Parramatta for just $30 (+bf) to your ticket purchase. Find out more
