Circus, Australian style – A high-octane spree of physical virtuosity, Backbone tests the limits of strength: physical, emotional, individual and collective. Sexy but sincere, raw yet utterly disciplined, Backbone is proof you can’t do the impossible without spending a little sweat.

Gravity & Other Myths (GOM) is an internationally renowned circus company pushing the boundaries of contemporary circus. Formed in Adelaide, Australia in 2009, GOM has rocketed to stellar acclaim with a series of disarmingly accomplished ensemble works. GOM’s work utilizes an honest approach to performance, to create shows with a focus on human connection and acrobatic virtuosity.

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.

Gravity & Other Myths is supported as an organization by Arts South Australia.

Backbone is supported by the Australia Council for the Arts.
