Backbone examines the various perceptions of what strength is, where it comes from and how it is measured. This frenetic celebration of human interconnectedness will test the limits of strength: physical, emotional, individual and collective.It is set in the here and now. We won’t be transporting the audience to Verona. We are on a stage. In a theatre. In front of them!

Backbone is this amazing circus company’s third work. Their last show A Simple Space, achieved huge international success and has been performed more than 350 times at 68 festivals and theatres across 18 countries.

“Magnetic world premiere, a perfect combination of fluidity, mettle and danger … The sheer strength of body and character needed to round out this frenzied performance demonstrates a discipline and camaraderie, rarely seen on stage. Simply a joy to watch.”

Limelight Magazine

“Circus, as you’ve never seen it before, pushed to its conceptual and cerebral limits. A genre-defying, thought-provoking, visual extravaganza … so intensely beautiful it makes you proud to be human.”

InDaily

“A glorious flow of action and reaction … The acrobatics are eloquent and sensational, full of original twists that spell out a new language.“
