South Australia’s favourite homegrown “contemporary circus powerhouse”, Gravity & Other Myths (GOM), will ring in the 2022 Adelaide Festival with this free opening night event alongside the incredible Djuki Mala!

Country Arts SA has joined with the Adelaide Festival to bring this fun-filled display of human strength and creativity direct to you, livestreamed from the Adelaide Oval to select cinemas across the state.

Macro combines the talents of electrifying local contemporary circus company Gravity and Other Myths with dance sensations Djuki Mala from North East Arnhem Land, featuring a 30-strong acrobatic troupe, a mass choir, ancient Celtic rhythms, fireworks and giant projection scrims in a fun, free family event that can be enjoyed across the state.

Those of you who saw GOM’s The Pulse at the 2021 Adelaide Festival will know what to expect when the full 30 strong troupe team up with a mass choir. Now add pipes and drums to the equation. And amplification. And giant projection scrims and a colossal ascending triangular lighting rig. We don’t have a castle, but GOM’s inspirational towers and turrets of fit young bodies are equally breathtaking.

Join this awesome community of performers in a celebration like no other. It’s FREE but bookings are required. General Admission.
