Seven acrobats and 30 metres of rope…
By a Thread is 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 precise negotiation of cause and effect. The performers use this metaphor for connectedness to explore the give and take, balance, and dynamics of relating to one another. Leaving the realm of the solo act where the performer relies on their individual strength, our acrobats rely on the strength of the group to hold the end of the rope, keeping them aloft.
By a Thread offers rich visuals of inventive aerial acrobatics and spectacular skills from some of Australia’s best 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 and new skills are made possible.
