Gravity & Other Myths

Out of Chaos… devised by Gravity & Other Myths music by Ekrem Phoenix directed by Darcy Grant

‘Wow! Just wow! Incredible.’

Out of Chaos… is a spectacular exploration of thrillingly skilful circus featuring jaw–dropping acrobatics with live music. The amazing acrobats and performers from the no–frills, DIY circus company’s previous shows Backbone and A Simple Space both took the world by storm playing Galway, Australia, Europe and America. With rave reviews and standing ovations at every sold–out performance, Gravity & Other Myths has been greeted with rapturous responses across the globe. Out of Chaos... is Gravity & Other Myths boldest and most ambitious work yet with hard–edged, throbbing and explosive acrobatics. By exposing the inner workings of the world–class acrobat, we unveil the magic that is Gravity & Other Myths’ most precious commodity; genuine human connection between each other and the audience. Commissioned by the Adelaide Festival, Ten Days on the Island, Galway International Arts Festival, La Strada Graz Festival and La Brèche, Pôle National Cirque de Normandie/Cherbourg–en–Cotentin.
