A Simple Space sets audiences alight with non-stop feats of unbelievable acrobatic ability and human physicality.
Simple only in its setting, the show’s stripped-down and bare staging lets the strength, skill and creativity of Gravity & Other Myths’ acrobats take centre stage. The stakes get higher as each tries to outdo the other with greater and more daring stunts and off-the-wall tricks. You can feel the heat from their bodies, hear every breath as the performers hurl one another through the air and build teetering human towers. Supported by driving live percussion and with nothing left to hide behind, personal narratives come through naturally. This honesty is the essence behind A Simple Space.
