Physical theatre with 24 bodies and 26 voices.
Performed by Gravity & Other Myths, a company that routinely eludes earth’s forces and a euphoric symphony of strength, sinew, and song, it sends humans into the air and hearts into mouths.
One of Australia’s finest boundary-pushing, jaw-slackening circus company reveal their most ambitious show yet. Gravity & Other Myths’ The Pulse is packed to the brim with visceral, poetic and heart-stopping feats of strength and agility.
Watch as a mountain of bodies crumbles into an ocean of voice and towering human structures glide with precision through five kilometres of pulsing computer-controlled web, complete with reactive, intense lighting design and composer Ekrem Eli Phoenix’s soundtrack, made to mimic the beat of your (racing) pulse.
“Just as I was wondering if this display, although spectacular, was going to turn into a one-trick circus, it moved into a fast and flourishing finale featuring an amazing willowy figure – and it was all over in a roar of applause. Perfect timing to the end.”
“The level of skill and agility is sublime… a soaring tribute to ambition and resilience”
“A monumental display of synchronicity and skill… It’s nail-biting stuff delivered with elegance and it’s a joy to experience.”
“The skill, artistry and daring on display is breathtaking”
