Based in Australia, Gravity & Other Myths is an internationally-renowned company that pushes the boundaries of contemporary circus. In its award-winning show, Backbone, the company (literally) tosses around the perception of what strength is, in what InDaily calls “a genre-defying, thought-provoking, visual extravaganza.”

Program notes available here.
