A high-octane spree of physical virtuosity, Backbone tests the limits of strength: physical, emotional, individual and collective.

In less than a decade, Adelaide’s acrobatic sensations Gravity and Other Myths have rocketed to stellar acclaim with a series of disarmingly accomplished ensemble works. Staged with a deceptively DIY aesthetic and dispensing of trickery and distraction, this is circus that goes straight for the jugular and leaves no viewer unmoved.

Backbone is the culmination of all that’s gone before: a celebration of human connectedness and the meaning of strength, its athletic appeal is run through with a conceptual brilliance that elevates it to a new level.

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