By Gravity Dolls

World Premiere



Last week one of the performers from Tandem, Poppy Seed's fifth and final show, fell during rehearsal, injuring their wrist. Circus by nature is a highly physical and risky art form and while Gravity Dolls takes the necessary precautions to maintain high safety standards, accidents do happen. The performer is thankfully expected to make a full recovery in the coming weeks, however due to the nature of the injury is unable to perform in the scheduled season and the best course of action is to postpone the performance. 

 At this stage it will likely be in May or June next year but we will be making an announcement once we have the season firmly locked down with Chapel off Chapel. Whilst cancelling the season is disappointing, this outcome allows Gravity Dolls to regroup and present the show in all its Retro-video game glory as intended next year! Stay tuned for information regarding the new dates.

A Choose your own circus adventure

Inspired by retro video games, board games and the absurdity of Japanese game shows, Melbourne-based circus-duo Gravity Dolls creates a new interactive performance game: Tandem.

Bridging the gap between how generations play games, Tandem is a fun, spontaneous and interactive – it allows audiences to work together to play a suite games with a circus twist.

Gravity Dolls is a collaboration between the storytellers, aerialists and acrobats: Tarah Carey and Tim Rutty – they draw from circus, movement, design and text to create stories that unfold in, around and above the audience.
