Next Occurrence : 25 Feb 2021
What? Sixty people on stage? Thirty bodies in close-knit, full-pelt, intimate, sweaty co-operation; another thirty faces with wide open mouths singing their lungs out? This exhilarating spectacle is the stuff of lockdown dreams: a massive embodiment of our primal hunger for community and physical touch. Audience, acrobat and choir fuse into a single organism for a moment in time.
Back for its third and biggest Festival mainstage show, Gravity & Other Myths, the home-grown company that conquered the world, brings together all three of its core ensembles plus a choir of 30 voices. The Pulse is the wholly Australian work of scale that we’ve been longing for. The Helpmann award-winning creative team responsible for Out of Chaos... — director Darcy Grant, designer Geoff Cobham and composer Ekrem Eli Phoenix — reunite to reignite the signature spirit of this unique company: visceral, poetic, heart-stopping feats…dispatched by your best mates.
Watch as a mountain of bodies crumble into an ocean of voice and towering human structures move with precision through five kilometres of pulsing computer-controlled web. Cobham’s lighting design, combined with Grant’s inspired crowd management and Phoenix's driving score, create an intricate, organic synchronicity of human movement and sound — all to the beat of your own pounding pulse.
It’s the heart-starter we all need.
