FRINGE PICK: Gravity’s Rainbow



What happens when the laws of gravity suddenly change? An ordinary man’s world becomes unhinged in this gleeful combination of circus and theater arts, a gravity-defying performance of exceptional acrobatic talents and optical illusions. Limitless worlds are created out of confined spaces thanks to ingeniously projected video animations. Pictures drawn in chalk come to life and morph into new scenery and landscapes. The audience wonders what’s real and what’s projected—and which way is up—as reality becomes delightfully skewed along Leo’s highly imaginative journey. LEO won several major awards at the 2011 Edinburgh Fringe Festival. For all ages.

Sept. 12-22, various times, $29, Arts Bank at the University of the Arts, 601 S. Broad St. For tickets, call 215-413-1318 or visit
