Gravity is one of the most basic and powerful forces in nature. It acts upon us and upon every physical object in the same way. This force defines the language we use in everyday life: Up-down, light-heavy, high art- low art, life- death. Gravity doesn’t care if we land or crash, it will remain the same. We take a moment to play with it. We become pure mass and try to surrender to its blind will.
Gravitas is a two man duet combining contemporary dance and acrobatics performed on an air floor mat. The piece questions ideas of manhood and boyhood; the two performers play recklessly with each other and the audience, trying to regain a sense of fearlessness that is usually lost in childhood.
