Untitled Document
By a Thread - One Fell Swoop Circus
Redland Performing Arts Centre

Seven acrobats and 30 metres of rope …

Long spools of white rope run through pulley sheaves and wrap around bodies, explicitly connecting the artists’ movements above and off the ground. Like the booms and sheets of a sailing ship, the performers are hoisted and swung by one another to create striking tableaux and breath-taking dynamics. The actions of one acrobat affect and implicate the movements of others in a precise negotiation of cause and effect. 

By a Thread offers rich visuals of inventive aerial acrobatics 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.
