Fearless, self-mocking circus theatre
Where most children tend to play marbles or football when school's out, the members of Gravity & Other Myths would spend their afternoons honing their skills on the horizontal bars. The Australian company, who wowed the crowds with Backbone, Noorderzon's opening performance in 2017, is renowned throughout the world for its power, daring and unrivalled athletic prowess. This year the group returns to Noorderzon, more dauntless, ambitious and explosive than ever. In Out Of Chaos … the circus is an escape channel. En route, the acrobats mould the chaos of everyday into a new and pioneering universe. Yet they do not do so without revealing their most vulnerable aspects. While the artists fall and roll, jostle and sway, in the background a soundtrack can be heard in which their self-mocking voices criticise the show – and themselves. Breathtakingly brilliant.

“Conceptually briljant and sophisticatedly simple, Out of Chaos… is new 'new circus', unpicking its own seams and delighting in the dishevelment”

- Allison Flett, InDaily
