Gravity & Other Myths (GOM) is a multi-award winning and well respected Australian acrobatics ensemble. The company creates engaging works of acrobatic art for touring, festivals and corporate clients. Formed in 2009 in Adelaide, South Australia, the ensemble creates and directs their own work with emphasis on an honest approach to performance, moving away from traditional circus and theatre models, towards a fusion of acrobatic physical theatre. Their touring work is represented both across Australia and internationally by Aurora Nova.
The company’s first work Freefall has toured extensively across regional and metropolitan Australia since its conception in 2009, receiving rave reviews and winning multiple awards including; Best Circus at the 2010 Adelaide Fringe, Tour Ready at the 2011 Adelaide Fringe and both Best Circus and Best Emerging Circus/Physical Theatre Performer at the 2011 Melbourne Fringe. Freefall was nominated for Pick of the Fringe at the 2013 Adelaide Fringe.
In 2013 Gravity & Other Myths Premiered their second work ‘A Simple Space’ at the 2013 Adelaide Fringe Festival winning the weekly award for Best Circus and receiving a nomination for Best Circus Overall.
