The Pulse

Gravity & Other Myths

Presented by Darwin Festival and Darwin Entertainment Centre

Gravity & Other Myths, the home-grown circus company that conquered the world, brings together all three of its core ensembles plus a choir of 22 voices for The Pulse.

This pulsing, monolithic work unites audience, acrobat and choir into a single organism for a moment in time.

Watch as a mountain of bodies crumbles into an ocean of voices and towering human structures move with precision through an ever-changing web of ropes and elastic. Geoff Cobham’s sentient lighting design, combined with Darcy Grant’s inspired crowd management and Ekrem Eli Phoenix’s driving score, create an intricate, organic synchronicity of human movement and sound – all to the beat of your own pounding pulse!

The Pulse is packed to the brim with visceral, poetic and heart-stopping feats of strength and agility matched with sublime vocal dexterity. The result is exhilarating.

Duration: 1 hour, 10 minutes
