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 you! Backbone is this amazing circus company’s third work. Their last show A Simple Space, achieved huge international success, seen at off-CINARS 2016 and has been performed more than 570 times at 76 festivals and theatres across 26 countries. Acrobats: Martin Schreiber, Lachlan Binns, Jascha Boyce, Jacob Randell, Lewie West, Lewis Rankin, Joanne Curry, Mieke Lizotte, Lachlan Harper, Jackson Manson Musician and Composers: Elliot Zoerner, Shenton Gregory Stage and Lighting Designer: Geoff Cobham Producer: Craig Harrison Creative Associate: Triton Tunis-Mitchell
