About this event

Returning to Adelaide Fringe 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.
