Simultaneously raw, frantic, and delicate, seven skilled acrobats thumb their noses at the rules of gravity. In this dizzying collection of works in new circus, you become intimate with the stripped back stage where physical limits are pushed to the brink and the usual guards are broken down, exposing the reality of failure and weakness. Evoking real and visceral responses in audiences, A Simple Space is a truly unique experience not to be missed.

Just got home from the opening night of A Simple Space, and seriously, wow. I’m racking my brain to figure if I’ve ever seen a physical performance I enjoyed more. It was edgy and funny, and dangerous and so energized. I actually don’t know if I’ve ever had more fun in or out of a theatre.” – Jillian Christmas, Facebook
