Gravity & Other Myths
Australia | Spain
The rhythm of the heartbeat is the beat of our lives. And also that of an extraordinary stage experience for the opening of La Strada 2023 at Graz Opera. "The Pulse" unites 24 artists from the Australian company Gravity & Other Myths, 36 Catalan choral singers and the audience into a single pulsating organism. With moving music, sophisticated lighting design and masterfully choreographed acrobatics, this multi-award-winning masterpiece of contemporary circus symbolises a seemingly impossible feat of collective strength in the eternal cycle of growth, blossoming and decay.
"Circus with a big, pounding heart and an honest, earthy soul."
