By the company behind The Pulse, presented to a sold-out crowd at MONTRÉAL COMPLÈTEMENT CiRQUE last July!
In The Mirror, together with director Darcy Grant, the artists explore the concept of entertainment through the language of contemporary circus and question what the modern human finds entertaining. What do we want to show the world and is it something that others want to see? What does authenticity mean, especially in the age of ubiquitous screens and permanent self-presentation?
The high-level dance and acrobatics in the piece are offset by an innovative contemporary design, using an LED wall, cameras and selfie sticks. Highly expressive, playful and accompanied by the outstanding electronic compositions and pop mash-ups of composer Ekrem Eli Phoenix, the artists of Gravity & Other Myths set out on a search for the “true” self.
This company has enchanted Montreal with A simple space in 2014 and 2015, Backbone in 2018 and the riveting The Pulse, which sold out and delighted critics and audiences alike at the most recent edition of MONTRÉAL COMPLÈTEMENT CiRQUE.
« Intimate and hilarious, this performance from contemporary circus companyGravity and Other Myths is one of a kind. »
We're a circus company with roots in Adelaide, Australia. We utilise an honest approach to performance to create work with a focus on human connection and acrobatic virtuosity. Through this, we hope to maintain an exceptional and diverse artistic program. After forming 2009 as a group of young Adelaide artists with a passion for circus and physical theatre, we’ve spent the past 13 years growing steadily and creating six critically acclaimed main stage works.
