Gravity & Other Myths


A Simple Space

A Simple Space, the world renowned, award winning work by Gravity & Other Myths, one of Australia's leading contemporary circus companies, is simultaneously raw, frantic and delicate. Presented so intimately that you can feel the heat, hear every breath, and be immersed in every moment.

Four acrobats push their physical limits without reserve, breaking down their usual guards and introducing the reality of failure and weakness. With nothing left to hide behind, the personal narratives and inherent trust and camaraderie shine through naturally. This honesty is the essence behind A Simple Space.
