A Simple Space

Gravity & Other Myths

A total triumph!
The Guardian (UK)

Stripped back and raw… an awe-inspiring display of strength, skill and creativity
The Advertiser

Simultaneously raw, frantic and delicate, seven skilled acrobats push their physical limits without reserve.  Supported by driving percussion, immersed in every moment, A Simple Space evokes real responses in audiences, visceral rather than cerebral.

There’s no fine-tuning of performances with make-up, lighting and contrived theatrical overlay.  Sitting close to a stripped back stage, the audience feel the heat, see the sweat and hear every breath.

Armed with nothing more than brute strength and cat-like agility, these acrobats break down their usual guards, introducing the reality of possible failure and weakness.  With nothing left to hide behind, personal narratives shine through.  This honesty is the essence of A Simple Space.
