Fearless circus theatre from Down Under
Whilst 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 brave, daring and often extreme athletic prowess. In Out Of Chaos… the circus is an escape channel, within which the acrobats mold the chaos of everyday life into new and bold ways of sharing. Taking strength from their own vulnerabilities, they don't spare themselves their own critical eye. While the artists fall and roll, jostle and sway, in the background a soundtrack can be heard in which their self-mocking voices question and challenge both the show and themselves within it. Breathtakingly brilliant.

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