Freefall is a joyful, honest and beautifully crafted circus and physical theatre experience which returns to the Adelaide Fringe in 2013.
The talented group of local Adelaide young people met while training together at Cirkidz Youth Circus School before forming their own independent company in 2009.
The show has won multiple awards including the Adelaide Fringe Best Circus (2010), the Tour Ready Award (2011), Melbourne Fringe Best Circus and Best Emerging Circus/Physical Theatre Performer Award (2011).
Freefall explores how subtle and everyday fears can define who we are and the choices we make using honesty, humour and high level group acrobatics.
I can honestly say that Freefall is my favourite show I have seen this Adelaide Fringe. It had a bit of everything – drama, humour, circus, acrobatics, theatre & dance.
I was in awe of the acrobatic skills of the performers and the whole audience was on the edge of their seats during some of the more risky routines.
The way the guys literally throw one of the female cast members around the stage is thrilling to watch and must take a huge level of trust on her part.
The theme of ‘fear’ is honest and insightful. The whole cast play their parts well but the young girl who plays the main character puts on a mesmerising performance.
This season of Freefall is over this year but the group has another show ‘A Simple Space’ playing at The Birdcage until March 16.
I highly recommend keeping an eye on Gravity and Other Myths as I’m sure w’ll see great things from them in the future!
