GRAVITY AND OTHER MYTHS A Simple Space Chubb Theatre at CCA

Seven acrobats push their physical limits without reserve; this performance is simultaneously raw, frantic and delicate. Supported by driving live percussion and presented so intimately that you can feel the heat, hear every breath, and be immersed in every moment.

Please note that this performance includes a funny segment with a moment of near nudity.

“Cirque du Soleil with a fistful of grit” – UK Express

A Simple Space evokes real responses in audiences, something visceral rather than cerebral. Instead of fine-tuning the performance with makeup, lighting and contrived theatrical overlay, the cast have deliberately gone the opposite way. The audience is brought in close to surround the stripped back stage. In that space the acrobats are pushed to the physical limit, breaking down their usual guards and introducing the reality of failure and weakness. With nothing left to hide behind personal narratives come through naturally. This honesty is the essence behind A Simple Space.

Processing and convenience fees are standard in the performing arts industry, but since the Capitol Center for the Arts handles ticket sales independently, our fees are much lower than the average fee you’ll find with theatres using third party ticketing companies. A variable per ticket convenience fee will be added to every order purchased online or by phone. You are not charged this per ticket fee when purchasing in person at the Box Office. These fees help to cover the cost of operating the theatre, as well as administrative and box office staffing, credit card fees charged by merchant services, ticketing software, 24/7 ordering via our website, postage, computer and telephone systems, utilities and supplies.
