Tipping Point from Ockham’s Razor
Newcastle Dance City
Wednesday 4th to Saturday 7th November 2015

Ockham's Razor create original and ground breaking physical theatre and dance work.

They return with their fourth full length production Tipping Point. The show is set in the round, the five performers enclosed within the circle of the stage.

They take the simplest of equipment, 5 metre metal poles, and transform them into a rich landscape of images - a thin path picked through a mountain, the swell of the sea, a forest balancing on the tips of fingers…The performers balance, climb, spin and cling to this teetering, changing world, supporting each other as they wrestle and play with the moment when things begin to shift and tilt towards the tipping point.

The audience are drawn close to the action as the toppling poles are cast out beyond the circle of the stage and over their heads.

Produced by Turtle Key Arts.

“Ockham's Razor is a hugely promising young aerial company who don't just have superb circus skills, but also highly creative
brains.” The Guardian

“Britain’s most innovative aerial theatre group.” Total Theatre
