By A Thread

By A Thread



Presented by One Fell Swoop Circus

Long spools of white rope run through pulley sheaves and wrap around bodies, explicitly connecting the artists’ movements above the ground. The actions of one acrobat affect and implicate the movements of others in a mesmerising negotiation of cause and effect.   

Circus necessarily develops high levels of trust and communication within ensembles. By a Thread was created to bring a new dimension to these acrobatic relationships, and the parallels they draw to our everyday interactions. Virtuosic acrobatics and intricate choreography weave through moments of confusion, hilarity, romance, playfulness, fear and friendship.   

“Best show in town these days. Feel inspired by these very talented circus artists. You just can’t move your eyes away from them the whole time!” - audience member, Shanghai

Pre-show entertainment: 6.30pm, free nibbles, drinks at bar prices. Before you gasp at One Fell Swoop Circus above the ground, catch Rosy Red Cheeks on the ground in the foyer. Join us a little earlier as these Beechworth darlings play a rather smashing variety of hip tunes from every decade.

Warning: Theatrical haze.
