Please note: This event has been cancelled due to current circumstances.

A high-octane spree of physical virtuosity, Backbone tests the limits of strength: physical, emotional, individual and collective. 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 spending a little sweat. Gravity & Other Myths (GOM) is an internationally renowned circus company pushing the boundaries of contemporary circus.

Formed in Adelaide, Australia in 2009, GOM has rocketed to stellar acclaim with a series of disarmingly accomplished ensemble works. GOM’s work utilises an honest approach to performance to create shows with a focus on human connection and acrobatic virtuosity.
