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!
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.
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.
If you didnt catch GOM’s performance last year, then you are in for a treat. This spectacular opening night will be a fun, beautifully produced event for families and friends to marvel at. A heart-in-mouth display of skill and co-ordination. But it will be more than that. From their humble DIY origins, every show mounted by this company is founded by a deep unspoken principle: to show what humans can do when they trust each other, support each other and urge each other to go further.
Join this awesome community of performers in a celebration like no other. Its FREE but bookings are required. General Admission.
Supported by the UK/Australia Seasons Patron Board, the British Council and the Australian Government as part of the UK/Australia Season
