Australia’s finest boundary-pushing, jaw-slackening circus company reveal their most ambitious show yet.

Gravity & Other Myths’ The Pulse is packed to the brim with visceral, poetic and heart-stopping feats of strength and agility.  

Returning to Sydney Festival following their multi-award-winning work Backbone (Sydney Festival 2018), The Pulse brings together 30 acrobats and a 30 strong choir into “one shimmering mass [with] spectacular systems and organisms of muscle, bone and voice” says Darcy Grant, Creative Lead for Gravity & Other Myths. 

Watch as a mountain of bodies crumbles into an ocean of voice and towering human structures glide with precision through five kilometres of pulsing computer-controlled web, complete with reactive, intense lighting design and composer Ekrem Eli Phoenix’s soundtrack, made to mimic the beat of your (racing) pulse.
