Following their four-month residency, Gravity & Other Myths open our guest Play series with their acclaimed debut work and audience favorite A Simple Space.
With a lot of wit, joy of movement and creativity, seven acrobats challenge each other to a playful competition. In the process, they let their stage extend far into the audience space until there is nothing left behind which they can hide. Supported by the driving rhythm of a live percussionist, they repeatedly push their physical limits. Their masterful acrobatic skills can be felt up close, as can the friendship and blind trust of the performers.
A Simple Space is contemporary circus full of playfulness and warmth, and we couldn’t have asked for a more fitting start to our new guest series. Let’s Play!
