Tipping Point

  • Show Information

Aerial circus company Ockham’s Razor presents its new full length show, Tipping Point. Set in the round, the action veers from catastrophe to mastery as five performers transform simple five-metre metal poles into a rich landscape of images. Poles are balanced on fingertips, hung from the roof, lashed, climbed, swung from and walked along, they become forests, cross-roads and pendulums. The performers must decide whether to rail against the chaos, struggling to exert order on a disordered world, or ride it out, allowing life to tilt towards the tipping point.

Co-commissioned by London International Mime Festival and The Lowry, Salford Quays.

THE TIMES
