Returning to Fringe World for its final year, By A Thread is an ensemble circus creation beautifully exploring the relationship between trust and risk.
Long spools of white rope run across the stage and wrap around strong bodies, explicitly connecting intricate movements above and on the ground.
Breath-taking dynamics accompanied by a fluid soundtrack, the performers glide from slow and mesmerising to joyful antics. The acrobatics move swiftly from rope to floor, as the audience marvels at the strength, grace and symbiotic timing unfolding.
By A Thread is a powerful, dramatic cutting edge production, and a visceral treat worth adding to your Fringe calendar.
Deservedly, the show won the Adelaide Fringe Weekly Circus Award 2018. See it. ★★★★
‘By A Thread’ is on in the Main Hall at Girls School, Perth CBD until February 9.
Tickets are available through www.fringeworld.com.au.
