Seven acrobats push their physical limits without reserve. This performance is simultaneously raw, frantic and delicate. Supported by driving live percussion and presented so intimately that you can feel the heat and be immersed in every moment.

Gravity & Other Myths is an Australian company with top quality label. Instead of fine-tuning the performance with makeup, lighting and contrived theatrical overlay, the cast have deliberately gone the opposite way. The audience is brought in close to surround the stripped back stage. In that space the acrobats are pushed to the physical limit, breaking down their usual guards and introducing the reality of failure and weakness. With nothing left to hide behind personal narratives come through naturally. This honesty is the essence behind A Simple Space.
