Presented by Vulcana Women’s Circus in partnership with Brisbane Powerhouse

Inertia: a disinclination to act, a body resisting acceleration, a body remaining in motion.

Inertia, the performance, with strong imagery, gutsy circus, and the bodies of 10 women, explores the dilemma of how to take action amongst the mass of media noise. Using acrobatics, movement, interaction with objects and other bodies, the performers tackle inertia through physical action and reaction. They create circus that is inventive and entertaining.


The entire show seemed to be a celebration for existing.
