By a Thread
Beautiful. Mesmerising. Breathtaking.
Melbourne-based company One Fell Swoop Circus are back with their gravity-defying performance By a Thread.
A spectacle of acrobatics, movement and strength, By a Thread explores the relationship between trust and play.
Long white rope falls from the ceiling and wraps around the artists bodies as they playfully jump, hoist and swing to create breath-taking dynamics on the ground and in the air.
The seven-strong ensemble show off their incredible acrobatic skills ingeniously using the rope as a swing and a trapeze.
The performance is beautifully choreographed to a contemporary soundtrack and the set and costumes are minimalistic to focus on the unbelievable skill and strength of the artists.
I found myself on the edge of my seat, completely mesmerised at their ability to turn a piece of rope into a piece of art.
One of my favourite routines was when the artists all took turns in passing the rope to one another with their feet whilst holding different handstand positions, demonstrating unbelievable composure.
By a Thread is an absolute must-see at this year’s FRINGE WORLD.
