It seems impossible to imagine a circus act in such a small stage space as the Udderbelly presents when first arriving. However, this is what Australian group Gravity & Other Myths do – they bring the impossible to life.
Gasp in awe as they flip, tumble, balance and fly through the air, never breaching their tiny square of a stage. This show is not about fancy circus equipment or props, it is about power, strength, agility and simplicity. Although there may be nothing simple about any of the incredible stunts they witness, A Simple Space proves through humour and nothing more than their own bodies, they can create a stunning, gut- wrenching show.
Gravity & Other Myths give a truly breathtaking and daring performance that will leave you speechless.
