Laura in performance of Gravity and Other Myths

Gravity & Other Myths

G ravity & Other Myths is outdoor circus where the grandeur and dynamic nature of space meets the extreme and spectacular performance world of new circus!

Gravity and Other Myths will please existing fans and draw in new ones. Acts using fire, trapeze, web, hula hoops, dance and object animation draw inspiration from astronomy.

From the geometry of heavenly bodies to super nova explosions, from quantum physics to Maori astronomy, this is a show that leaves audiences breathless in amazement!

Gravity and Other Myths premiered as part of Wellington Fringe 07 at Queens Wharf, and then toured to Christchurch for the International Buskers Festival in 2008 before a triumphant return to Wellington and Civic Square for the Summer City Festival.

Gravity & Other Myths is in Repertory

Reviews and Awards

Best Outdoor theater - Wellington Fringe 2007

“The ability of the cast was unquestioned, as was their air of the exotic, their otherness, and their enjoyment. Like all good new circus, it had humour, drama, and good fun, it was a little bit sinister, a little bit silly and a little bit scary. I enjoyed it thoroughly. ” Justin Gregory – Lumiere

    A welcome addition in 2008, a band of Aliens experiment with that mystical force: Gravity!
