The many forces at work in this show are cleverly conceived — the push and pull between lift and gravity, the center of gravity that must correspond with the center of pressure — and attractively rendered on stage. Though the hypothetical conceit itself ultimately feels a little slight, and the takeaway thus a little like an exercise — neither here nor there, mid-air — Center of Gravity certainly is a beautiful ride.
