Hair-rising circus that tests the limits of mind, body and soul.
Combining brains, muscle, teamwork and heart, Backbone is an acrobatic marvel you have to see to believe. Its jaw-dropping physical feats conquer the impossible with the bare essentials: strength, spirit and creativity that will have you on the edge of your seat and smiling from ear to ear.
From revolutionary Australian company Gravity & Other Myths, whose boundary-defying acts have elevated it to the pinnacle of international contemporary circus, this acclaimed new show is a playful and powerful showcase of what they do best: celebrating human connectedness through daring leaps of faith, highlighted by incredible performers, award-winning stagecraft and sublime live music.
Sweaty, sinuous and seriously impressive, Backbone is circus stripped back to its physical and emotional core, and is all the more exhilarating for it.
