Gravity & Other Myths

Gravity & Other Myths

Out Of Chaos...

Hard-edged, throbbing, explosive acrobatics that reference birth, death and primordial physics collide with intimate verbal confessions and insights into what it feels like to be on stage in real time… Complete with sweaty armpits.

By exposing the inner workings of the world-class acrobat we unveil the magic that is Gravity and Other Myths most precious commodity; the genuine human connection between each other and our audience.

At its conceptual center, it is a story of how things come together. People, planets and plans. Audience, performer, sound and light. The thoughts that shape us and in turn define how we make sense of our inner and outer worlds.

The piece moves with agility between chaotic creation stories and our seemingly ordered understanding of the here and now, all the while hinting at the strange space between knowing and contemplating our mortal significance.

We look forward to sharing our thoughts with you.
