Luther College Center Stage Series presents Gravity & Other Myths: A Simple Space

March 30, 2023

At 7:30 p.m. Friday, April 15, the Luther College Center Stage presents Gravity & Other Myths: A Simple Space in the Main Hall of the Center for Faith and Life.

Gravity & Other Myths is a troupe of acrobats from Adelaide, Australia, who push the boundaries of the contemporary circus genre, creating shows with a focus on human connection and acrobatic virtuosity. A Simple Space is an intimate 60-minute show in which a portion of the audience is seated on stage, surrounding the performers.

“This will be like nothing else the Center Stage Series has presented,” says Kristen Underwood, director of campus programming. “We’ve reconfigured some of the seating in the Center for Faith and Life, so some of the audience is in very close proximity to the acrobats. The athleticism and artistry of the performers is underscored by live percussion and the overall effect is spellbinding.”

A Simple Space is Gravity & Other Myth’s first work, and has been presented more than 1,000 times in 34 different nations.

“This is Cirque du Soleil, with a fistful of grit,” according to one critic from the UK Express.

The highly creative and talented chefs on the Norse Culinary Team invite you to partake in the Center Stage Dinner Series before the show. The dinners feature a multi-course menu to complement each performance. A separate ticket is required. All meals begin at 5:30 p.m. in the Peace Dining Room on the second floor of Dahl Centennial Union.

Additionally, the Luther Book Shop offers “Sip and Shop” before each performance. Present your ticket for a complimentary glass of wine and browse the selection before the show.
