AntiGravity® Brand & Ideals
★ In the early 1990’s, Christopher Harrison, an entrepreneurial minded athlete, champion gymnast, snow-blader, street skater, and college cheerleader turned Broadway dancer had a vision of merging the athletic and the aesthetic.
★ Mr. Harrison, always the trend-setter, understood the explosive nature of sports on stage and set out to combine the two.
He also discovered that what was once unique to the circus could be reconceived utilizing athletes to create a wholly new movement vocabulary.
★ He gathered fellow champions eager to let go of the “rules and regulations” of their sport and formed a performance company whose objective was to “challenge the limits of physicality”.
