By A Thread

Seven acrobats and thirty metres of rope...

A new ensemble circus creation, exploring the relationship between trust and risk on an innovative aerial apparatus.

Long spools of white rope run through pulley sheaves and wrap around bodies, explicitly connecting the artists’ movements above and off the ground. The actions of one acrobat affect and implicate the movements of others in a mesmerising negotiation of cause and effect. 

 The relationships between ensemble members on stage mimic the everyday relationships we have as human beings. Virtuosic acrobatics and intricate choreography weave through moments of confusion, hilarity, romance, playfulness, fear and friendship. The acrobatic ensemble is the vehicle through which ideas of risk and trust are explored, creating an intimate experience around the dangers and joys implicit in engaging with others. 

More than mere bodies in space, By a Thread is an exploration of tensions physical, emotional and relational. 

This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council for the Arts, its arts funding and advisory body.
