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 ASimple Space achieved huge international success and has been performed more than 700 times at 98 festivals and theatres across 29 countries.
Magnetic world premiere, a perfect combination of fluidity, mettle and danger …The sheer strength of body and character needed to round out this frenzied performance demonstrates a discipline and camaraderie, rarely seen on stage. Simply a joy to watch. – Limelight Magazine ★★★★★
Circus, as you’ve never seen it before, pushed to its conceptual and cerebral limits.A genre-defying, thought-provoking, visual extravaganza … so intensely beautiful it makes you proud to be human. – InDaily
