50 minutes (no interval)

Seven acrobats and 30 metres of rope…

Long spools of white rope run through pulley sheaves and wrap
 around bodies, connecting the artists’ movements above and off the ground. Like the booms and sheets of a sailing ship the performers are hoisted and swung by one another to create striking tableaux and breath-taking dynamics. The actions of one acrobat
affect and implicate the movements of others in a precise
negotiation of cause and effect.

By a Thread offers rich visuals of inventive aerial acrobatics from some of Australia’s best emerging circus artists. With intense training in a breadth of contemporary circus disciplines, the performers have pooled their knowledge and skills, and then exploded the traditional boundaries of these disciplines to create a show where classic techniques are used in expansive ways.

“A visual feast of amazing aerialist acrobatics performed within a contemporary circus stage and set to some vibrant musical scores” – Perth Walkabout
