From the company that brought us 2015’s hit A Simple Space, Backbone (literally) tosses around the perception of what strength is, where it comes from, and how it is measured. This international circus hit is a frenetic celebration of human interconnectedness that tests the limits of strength: physical, emotional, individual, and collective.

“Circus, as you’ve never seen it before…so intensely beautiful it makes you proud to be human”—InDaily

“The performers’ agility and stamina are beyond impressive. The trust they must have in each other and their absolute focus and understanding of limits is nothing short of spectacular. This is a new kind of circus”—The Barefoot Review

“Simply a joy to watch”—Limelight Magazine

“When these acrobats use the word strength, they’re measuring it in terms most of us can only imagine” —The Georgia Straight Fall Arts Preview, read more here
