Sweat, power, and the sublime. 

The corporeal glory of bodies, full of sweat, heat and power, forms the heart of The Mirror, the newest work from Gravity & Other Myths. The Australian company more than lives up to its title, suspending the laws of physics to generate a new kind of dance—infused with elements of circus, cabaret, and a light spanking of kink.

Offering much more than a metaphorical peek behind the curtain, The Mirror strips bare the architecture of performance itself. From the grunts, shouts, and onstage banter to the price paid for pushing the body to its absolute limit, this is heart-in-your-throat territory, leavened with a hefty dose of humour and some more outré elements from torch songs to sexy underpants. Scaling the heights of elegance before descending into near-Exorcist contortions, The Mirror loops in the audience for some gleeful conspiring, backstage access, and a little interactivity.

The feats of strength and balance are staggering enough, but amongst the fleshy tangles of arms and legs, the audience experiences something more than raw spectacle. A spiritual dimension emerges, created by sheer bodily effort—it is the stuff of awe that soars towards the sublime.

Don’t miss this acclaimed company’s most physically and conceptually ambitious performance ever—in Vancouver for three nights only!
