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.
