Triple Bill: Arc/Memento Mori/Every Action - T01022818160

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.Producer Turtle Keys Arts. Director Ruth Naylor-Smith (Arch).

Every Action... - T51812901

Ockham's Razor are four aerial artists who specialise in creating physical theatre around new pieces of aerial equipment and combining circus, dance and visual theatre. In Every Action... four strangers come together before twenty-five metres of rope looped over two pulleys. If someone pulls on one side of the rope, the rope on the other side is affected and it's here, in this world of push and pull, that the meaning of altruism, antagonism and reliance are all explored. Every Action... is at once playful and arresting and looks at a world where everything you do will affect someone, somewhere.
