DetailsAward-winning UK aerial theatre company Ockham's Razor create original and ground-breaking physical theatre from the stories and relationships inherent in circus. Arc - Arc tells the story of three people who find themselves stranded together. It is about the balance between them as relationships form and break apart. It explores the experience of isolation in close proximity. It takes place on an aluminium aerial raft rigged 3.5 metres off the ground. Due to the way it is rigged the structure seems to float in the air, it also up-ends dramatically half way through the performance. Memento Mori - Memento Mori is a powerful duet performed on a suspended metal frame. It is based on Holbein's woodcuts of 'The Dance of Death', where death is represented as a skeleton that dances each of us to our grave. Every Action - Every Action is a playful look at the bonds that form when people are thrown together. Four strangers meet before twenty-five metres of suspended rope. As they explore this elevated set of scales they discover a world where everything you do will affect someone, somewhere.
