Astonishing acrobatics combine with a live choir in this jaw-dropping, pulsating performance.
Gravity defied in spectacular fashion
The Pulse is a monolithic work of scale that unites audience, acrobat and choir into a single mesmerising organism. It’s raw, it’s real, it sings, it sweats – it pulsates.
A shimmering mass of sixty acrobats and choir members unite and divide, becoming a spectacular organism of muscle, bone and voice. Watch wide-eyed as a mountain of bodies crumbles into an ocean of sound. Towering human structures move with precision through a pulsing web of noise and light. Seemingly impossible levels of cooperation and feats of shared humanity, repeat, stretch, blossom and decay. Witness an intricate, organic synchronicity of human movement and sound – all to the beat of your own pounding pulse.
Critically acclaimed all over the world, legendary circus and physical theatre company Gravity & Other Myths brings together all three of its core ensembles, plus a choir of thirty voices for The Pulse. The Helpmann-Award-winning creative team responsible for 2019’s Out of Chaos – director Darcy Grant, designer Geoff Cobham and composer Ekrem Eli Phoenix – reunite to extend and amplify the signature spirit of this unique company: visceral, poetic and heart-stopping feats of wonder.
Part of the UK/Australia Season 2021-22, a joint initiative of the British Council and Australian Government’s Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, supported by the Government of South Australia through Arts South Australia
