What’s this all about?
Gravity & Other Myths want to actively support the growth of our community and artists. Government funding is scarce and often confusing, so we’ve decided to allocate some of our own resources to give artists a leg up in the form of Micro Loans to support costs the are limiting you taking on a good opportunity.
This might mean support with:
- Fringe registration fees,
- Travel costs
- Professional development costs
- Making a promo video
- Equipment or costume costs for a specific gig
- Or lots of other costs that prevent you taking the next step in your career.

Freefall is the first acrobatic feast from created by Gravity & Other Myths in 2009. Exploring their own fears onstage through honesty and humour, punctuated by dynamic acrobatics and contemporary circus theatre, Freefall asks the question… is it our fears that define us?
Freefall was critically acclaimed, won multiple awards and over 2 years toured regional and metropolitan Australia.
An exciting explosion of dynamic group acrobatics and incredible displays of physical strength, Exhale is a 15 minute act that will have audiences holding their breath as acrobats tumble across the stage and are tossed high into the air, the energy building to the final breath-taking feat.
Performed at corporate functions, award ceremonies, festivals, fundraisers and parades.
The GOM crew are big believers in real community engagement and when we are on tour we try to get involved with any local circus and performance communities.
Whether this is through workshops, Q & A session or just a quick meet and greet we love nothing more than to go beyond just being performers on a stage. We all came through youth programs in circus, gymnastics and dance and many of us went on to become teachers and trainers in these same programs. This pathway has lead us to be passionate about sharing our skills and knowledge and encouraging the next generation of performers.
Please contact us directly if you are interested and where our schedule permits we would love to share our passion with you.
