By A Thread – One Fell Swoop Circus | Cleveland
7 October, 2022 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Seven acrobats and 30 metres of rope are the stars of By a Thread, an aerial acrobatics spectacular coming to Redland Performing Arts Centre on Friday 7 October 2022 from 7:30pm.
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.
