The Australian circus troupe are set to headline this year’s Underbelly Festival from the 5th April.

Returning to London following their successful run with their show ‘Backbone’ at the royal Festival Hall last August, Gravity and Other Myths bring their show ‘A Simple Space’ to the Underbelly festival.

Featuring a brand new cast, the show shuns the traditional glitz and glamour, preferring to strip circus back to its core to push seven acrobats to their physical limits.

A Simple Space brings the audience as close as possible for a thoroughly intimate experience with an original live percussive soundtrack urging the acrobats on. The show is the original production from internationally renowned circus company Gravity and Other Myths (Backbone, Out of Chaos) which since premiering at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2013 has gone on to tour the world securing critical and audience favour in equal measure.

Having formed in 2009, Gravity and Other Myths pride themselves on pushing the boundaries of contemporary circus. Its production A Simple Space has achieved huge international success, receiving multiple awards, and having performed more than 600 times across 30 countries. The follow up show Backbone, created in 2017, has won multiple awards. The company’s latest piece Out of Chaos has recently premiered at Adelaide Festival.

A Simple Space will headline the Underbelly Festival from the 5th April until the 5th May.
