Sexy but sincere, raw yet utterly disciplined, Backbone is proof you can’t do the impossible without a little sweat.


A Gravity and Other Myths Production

Fri 4 & Sat 5 Nov 2022


$20 - 54 + transaction fee

Theatre, Lismore City Hall


In less than a decade, Australian acrobatic sensation Gravity & Other Myths (GOM) have rocketed to stellar international acclaim with a series of disarmingly accomplished ensemble works. A high-octane spree of physical virtuosity featuring ten extraordinary performers and a live band on stage, Backbone tests the limits of strength: physical, emotional, individual and collective.

Staged with a deceptively DIY aesthetic, this is circus that goes straight for the jugular. Directed by Darcy Grant, Backbone is the culmination of all that’s gone before. A celebration of human connectedness and the meaning of strength, its athletic appeal is combined with a conceptual brilliance that elevates it to a new level.

A genre-defying, thought-provoking, visual extravaganza … so intensely beautiful it makes you proud to be human.” – InDaily
