ANTICS: Seven aerial acrobats and a 30-metre-long rope make up By A Thread.

The importance of trust will be the subject of an acrobatic performance at Horsham Town Hall on March 27.
Production ‘By A Thread’, involving seven aerial acrobats and a length of rope, will feature a diverse cast ranging from street buskers to dancers who will perform counterweight acrobatics.
The live circus show uses a 30-metre-long rope, tying together ‘the give and take’ of everyday relationships with the physical movement of cast members on stage.
Described as a ‘comment on life’ by one reviewer, managing company One Fell Swoop hopes the show will explode the traditional boundaries of circus works in a merge of classic techniques and rich dramatic perspectives.
Performance promoters say audience members can experience striking tableaux and breath-taking dynamics.
“The actions of one acrobat affect and implicate the movements of others in a precise negotiation of cause and effect.”
‘By A Thread’ will continue to perform at venues across the state, including Ararat Town Hall on April 2, with shows at 11am and 7.30pm.
A school performance in Horsham for students will begin at 10.30am, with a general public performance at 8pm.
People can buy tickets at Horsham Town Hall Theatre. Bookings can also be made online at Tickets for Ararat’s show can be purchased online at
