A spectacular outdoor new circus showcase inspired by the stars!
As the stars appear, for eight nights Queens Wharf will be home to some of the country’s best new circus, performing on a purpose built outdoor circus rig, combined with pyrotechnics, spectacular lighting, sound and AV design.

Last year FUSE Productions brought you the award winning HEAVENLY BURLESQUE (Best of the Fringe & Best Fringe Theatre.) Gravity and Other Myths brings together a nationally and internationally experienced creative team with some of the hottest new stars. Gravity and Other Myths will have its world premier at Queens Wharf then tour nationally and internationally in the years to come. Don’t miss this opportunity to say you saw it first!

The grandeur and dynamic nature of space meets the most extreme and spectacular performance world of new circus! Acts using fire, stilt walking, trapeze, web, bungy, hula hoops, dance and object animation will draw inspiration from astronomy. From the geometry of heavenly bodies to super nova explosions, from quantum physics to Maori astronomy, this is a show that will leave audiences breathless in amazement!
