Freedom Festival Arts Trust and Hull New Theatre are proud to co-present Backbone by Gravity and Other Myths. Represented by Aurora Nova

They're back! They wowed Freedom Festival audiences in 2017 with their first show 'A Simple Space' and have since gone on to become one of the most sought after International contemporary circus companies in the world, do not miss this!

Unbelievable but sincere, raw yet utterly disciplined, Backbone is proof you can't do the impossible without spending a little sweat.

Backbone tests the limits of strength: physical, emotional, individual and collective.

Staged with a deceptively DIY aesthetic and dispensing of trickery and distraction, this is a circus that goes straight for the jugular and leaves no viewer unmoved. Backbone is the culmination of all that's gone before: a celebration of human connectedness and the meaning of strength, its athletic appeal running through with a conceptual brilliance that elevates it to a new level.
