Meet Sophia. She’s into science, sci-fi and Sigourney Weaver. She’s not sure why, but at least it’s something she can talk to her dad about, even when he’s a bottle in. She’s trying to understand a lot - growing up, her dad, and the complexities of the universe. She reckons she’ll need all three to become an astronaut.
That, and serious rubix cube skills.
Gravity Guts is a joyful and delicately woven story that attempts to explore the big ideas that have eluded womankind since the beginning of the universe: like what exactly is a quasar? What happens inside a black hole? How do you find your voice in a vacuum?
Featuring a stunning all-female vocal ensemble soundscape, and directed by Erica Lovell, this award-winning blend of autobiography, creative nonfiction and comedy tells the story of a girl who just wants to break free from her father’s orbit, but first she'll need to build up the guts.
