Overall, A Simple Space celebrates the best of circus in a simple, stylish and contemporary way that is thoroughly engaging to watch from beginning to end.
Backbone, from the Australian company Gravity And Other Myths, is a stunning display of acrobatics, combined with a refreshing playfulness that has me feeling upbeat and strangely emboldened.
The Australian circus troupe Gravity & Other Myths presents a clever and slick show that highlights the strength and the importance of the backbone.
Gravity & Other Myths‘ A Simple Space is just that – a small grey square, framed by an audience who are up close and friendly. The space is built, dismantled and reconstructed by an architecture of people who pile, climb and weave their bodies into towering structures.
