Presentation

A high-octane celebration of physical virtuosity, Backbone tests the limits of force: emotional, physical, individual and collective.

Staged with a deceptively Do-It-Yourself aesthetic and dispensing of distraction and trickery, this is circus that goes for the jugular and leaves no one unmoved. Backbone is a festival of human connection! Exploring the meaning of strength, its athletic appeal is run through with a conceptual brilliance that raises it to a new level. Sexy but honest, raw yet utterly disciplined, Backbone is the proof you can't achieve the impossible without spending a little sweat.
