Presented by Country Arts SA and Gravity & Other Myths

Join us for spine-tingling circus that defies the laws of gravity!

The internationally renowned team of high-flying, home-grown heroes from Gravity & Other Myths is set to thrill, entertain and send chills down the backbone.

Acrobats from the Adelaide-based circus company are coming to Whyalla in April for a week of workshops with local groups, culminating in major performances on Wednesday the 11th and Saturday the 14th April.

Described as “Cirque du Soleil with a fistful of grit” (UK Express), Gravity & Other Myths is made up of former members of Adelaide Company Cirkidz, which has been running circus classes and performances for toddlers to teenagers since the ’80’s.

“What a great show! It has the excitement of circus at its best combined with the grace and choreographic line of dance and the magical undercurrents of good theatre. ★★★★★” Sydney Morning Herald

This is acrobatics at its best – come and marvel at what the human body is capable of.

Gravity & Other Myths will be in residence from April 9 – 14 conducting a series of workshops and master classes. Expect to be surprised by them in unexpected places in Whyalla and other towns nearby. Register your interest to participate at [email protected].

★★★★★ The acrobatics are eloquent and sensational, full of original twists.

★★★★★ Magnetic… a perfect combination of fluidity, mettle and danger.
