Simultaneously raw, frantic and delicate, seven skilled acrobats push their physical limits without reserve. Supported by driving percussion, immersed in every moment, A Simple Space evokes real responses in audiences, visceral rather than cerebral.

There’s no fine--‐tuning of performances with make--‐up, lighting and contrived theatrical overlay. Sitting close to a stripped back stage, the audience feels the heat, see the sweat and hear every breath.

Armed with nothing more than brute strength and cat--‐like agility these acrobats break down their usual guards, introducing the reality of possible failure and weakness. With nothing left to hide behind, personal narratives shine through. This honesty is the essence of A Simple Space.

Gravity & Other Myths (GOM) is a multi-­‐award winning and well respected Australian acrobatics ensemble. The company creates engaging works of acrobatic art for touring, festivals and corporate clients. Formed in 2009 in Adelaide, South Australia, the ensemble creates and directs their own work with emphasis on an honest approach to performance, moving away from traditional circus and theatre models, towards a fusion of acrobatic physical theatre.
