Review: Backbone astounds audiences with incredible circus stunts

In Backbone, ten world-class acrobats take the stage in ever more astonishing stunts. Literally thrown back and forth—and in every direction—they toss themselves headfirst into unthinkable configurations; their bodies unimaginable building blocks as they challenge the various perceptions of what strength is, where it comes from and how it is measured.

This frenetic celebration of human interconnectedness will test the limits of strength: physical, emotional, individual, and collective. With astounding feats of human physicality, Backbone is an exciting, engaging show for all ages.

The performer’s stunts are so mindboggling and anxiety-inducing, Backbone makes you wonder if they even have spines. This performance is a visual cacophony of incredible flips and spins and unnerving feats.
