By A Thread - Fringe World
Returning to Fringe World for its final year, 'By a Thread' is an ensemble circus creation exploring the relationship between trust and risk. Long spools of white rope run through pulley sheaves and wrap around bodies, explicitly connecting movements above and on the ground. Like the booms and sheets of a sailing ship, performers are hoisted and swung by one another to create striking tableaux and breath-taking dynamics. The actions of one acrobat affect the movements of others in a mesmerising negotiation of cause and effect.
This event is part of FRINGE WORLD Festival, Perth’s favourite annual festival.
FRINGE WORLD Festival is from 17 January to 16 February. More information is at fringeworld.com.au
