BACKBONE (South Australia, Australia)


18 Mar 2019 - 20 Dec 2020

Short Synopsis

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!

Reviews Feature

“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

“A glorious flow of action and reaction … The acrobatics are eloquent and sensational, full of original twists that spell out a new language.*****
