A Simple Space (Gravity And Other Myths)

By | Published on Wednesday 21 August 2013

You do not need to know what to expect from this performance, but be prepared to have your breath taken away. This is a super physical theatre piece, set on an intimate and bare stage, and characterised by its performers’ command of athleticism, balance and daring acrobatics; these humble, hilarious and friendly Australians have clearly worked incredibly hard to get this good and produce a performance of this standard. Enhancing the work is a talented percussionist who plays exciting live music on an electric drum kit throughout. I found the work inspirational and impressive, and it left me stunned; even hours later, I was still thinking about it. I’d urge anyone to experience it for themselves.

Gilded Balloon Teviot, until 26 Aug, 1.30pm.
