Ockham’s Razor return to the Dance City with The Tipping Point, an impressive and dynamic new production that shows off the company’s tremendous range of skills – theatrics, circus tricks, balancing acts, aerial dance and athletic strength. Taking place from Wednesday 4th until Saturday 7th November, the production is set in the round; five performers take the simplest of equipment, five 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…

Known for their daring aerial theatre, innovative routines and clever narratives, Ockham’s Razor will not disappoint! Always on the edge of danger, this will be a spectacular and inspiring performance. 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! Accompanying music is mixed live, with violin and the saw serenading the performers.

Produced by Turtle Key Arts, there will be a post-show talk with the performers on Wednesday 4th November.

Ockham’s Razor: Tipping Point is at Dance City, Newcastle from Wednesday 4th until Saturday 7th November.
