Backbone

Fri April 17 - Sat April 18

Gravity & Other Myths

Backbone examines the various perceptions of what strength is, where it comes from and how it is measured. This frenetic celebration of human interconnectedness will test the limits of strength: physical, emotional, individual and collective.

It is set in the here and now. We won’t be transporting the audience to Verona. We are on a stage. In a theatre. In front of them! Backbone is this amazing circus company’s third work. Their last show A Simple Space, achieved huge international success and has been performed more than 530 times at 76 festivals and theatres across 24 countries.

“MAGNETIC WORLD PREMIERE, A PERFECT COMBINATION OF FLUIDITY, METTLE AND DANGER.”

*****    Limelight Magazine

“WITH BACKBONE, GRAVITY AND OTHER MYTHS HAS PRODUCED SOMETHING SO INTENSELY

BEAUTIFUL IT MAKES YOU PROUD TO BE HUMAN. AND IN OUR CURRENT GLOBAL CLIMATE, THAT’S A RARE AND WONDERFUL THING.”  Alison Flett, InDaily

RUNNING TIME 80 mins

This show is part of the BMEC Annual Season 2020. Tickets will be on sale for BMEC Members from Wednesday 20 November and will  be on sale to general public from 9am on Tuesday 14 January. 

 

Backbone has been assisted by the Australian Government’s Major Festivals Initiative, through the Confederation of International Arts Festivals Inc. commissioned by Adelaide Festival, Melbourne Festival & Sydney Festival.
