Using the simple apparatus of a rope and pulley, and the physics of counterweight, tension, muscle and flight, By a Thread is a visually rich, imaginative display of cutting-edge acrobatics from seven of Australia’s best emerging circus artists.

This show offers unique insight into the workings of an ensemble, the dangers intrinsic to the art form and the counterpoint of joy in challenging the risk, alongside the intimacy of human experience.

For the rope is a physical manifestation of the trust implicit in any relationship, acrobatic or otherwise. The performers use this metaphor for connectedness to explore the give and take, balance, and dynamics of relating to one another.

Beautifully choreographed, brilliantly executed, “By a Thread brings a unique depth to the heights of aerobatic display.” (Australian Stage).

Created and performed by One Fell Swoop; directed by Jonathan Morgan and Charice Rust
