By A Thread
One Fell Swoop Circus
Created by Charice Rust and Jonathan Morgan 

 

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

Circus, by the nature of the physicality and risk present in the art-form, 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.

The relationships between ensemble members on stage mimic the everyday relationships we have as human beings. The acrobatic ensemble is the vehicle through which ideas of risk and trust are explored, creating an intimate experience around the dangers and joys implicit in engaging with
others.

The counterpoint to the danger in circus is the joy that is integral to working as an ensemble, the joy of challenging the risk, and uncovering the possibilities at the intersection of both. More than mere bodies in space, By a Thread is an exploration of tensions physical, emotional and relational.

Performance duration: 50 mins, no interval

Age recommendation: All ages

The Venue: Ulumbarra Theatre

 

Meaning ‘gather together’ or ‘meeting place’ in the language of the local Dja Dja Wurrung people, Bendigo’s Ulumbarra Theatre rises majestically from what was once the Sandhurst Gaol.
