Gravity & Other Myths

Out of Chaos...

This is a past event which has now ended.

Norfolk & Norwich Festival 2020 has been cancelled

It is with regret that we have taken the very difficult but ultimately inevitable decision to cancel the 2020 Norfolk & Norwich Festival.

With the rapidly escalating health-crisis and with the safety of our audiences, staff and artists at heart, we have taken the decision that it is impossible for us to deliver the Festival this May.

If you have booked a ticket for the Festival, you do not need to do anything. You are entitled to a refund and we will be in touch soon. Please bear with us during this difficult time. If you have the capacity to make a donation of part or all of your ticket value, we would be extremely grateful – it would help ensure we’re well-placed to support artists and be able to present future Festivals.

The boldest and most ambitious work yet from the no-nonsense, DIY circus company that took Norwich by storm in 2019.

Hard-edged, throbbing, explosive acrobatics referencing birth, death and primordial physics collide with intimate verbal confessions to create an insight into what it feels like to be on stage in real time… Complete with sweaty armpits.

By exposing the inner workings of the world-class acrobat they unveil the magic that is Gravity & Other Myths’ most precious commodity; genuine human connection between each other and our audience.

At its conceptual centre, it is a story of how things come together.

People, planets and plans.

Audience, performer, sound and light.

The thoughts that shape us and in turn define how we make sense of our inner and outer worlds.

The piece moves with agility between chaotic creation stories and our seemingly ordered understanding of the here and now, all the while hinting at the strange space between knowing and contemplating our mortal significance.

‘A spectacular exploration of circus and its relationship to and chaos in our lives.’ Limelight Magazine ★★★★1/2

‘Conceptually brilliant and sophisticatedly simple, this is circus with a big pounding heart and an honest, earthy soul.’ In Daily

‘The company’s strongest work to date. Imaginative, expressionistic, thrilling and aesthetically refined.’ Artshub ★★★★★

‘Dance mutates into dangerous physicality of amazing and refreshingly different physical theater performance.’ The Barefoot Review ★★★★★
