Be prepared to have your breath taken away

You’ll flip, fly and fall in love with this exciting, jaw-dropping show where seven acrobats push their physical limits to the extreme. A breathtaking display of fear-less acrobatics and death-defying feats, A Simple Space will blow you away. Simple only in its setting, the show’s stripped-down and bare staging let 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. Wow, feels like an understatement. Run, don’t walk to this show! Watch the video below.
