Gravity Attacks! Friday at Tilson


News Release

TERRE HAUTE — The Passing Zone Presents: Gravity Attacks! on Friday in Tilson Auditorium on the campus of Indiana State University.

The Passing Zone includes Jon and Owen, two performers who describe themselves as The Flying Karamazov Brothers (but more hip), Penn & Teller (but cleaner), The Smothers Brothers (but younger), Cirque du Soleil (but American), Blue Man Group (but less blue), the Blue Collar Comedy Tour (but funny) and Carrottop (but less, well, Carrottoppy), all rolled into one.

In their new show, Gravity Attacks!, Jon and Owen invite the audience to join them in their fight against the world’s most destructive evil force — gravity. Gravity has been keeping us all down for far too long, and finally someone is doing something about it. The Passing Zone puts gravity in its place, overpowering it with seemingly effortless dexterity. Objects (like chainsaws, torches and knives) fly through the air. Guests will even see three people from the audience floating through space, orbiting planets and narrowly escaping dangerous collisions.

Join the fight at 7:30 p.m. Friday. A pre-show event is planned for 6:45 p.m. Ticket are $14-16 for adults; $5 for youth; $9-12 for ISU faculty and staff; and the performance is free to ISU students.

To purchase tickets visit the Hulman Center Ticket Office, 200 N. Eighth St., www.HulmanCenter.org or call 1-800-745-3000.
