London-based Ockham’s Razor push themselves to the limit on 5-metre metal poles that transform into a myriad of walkways, pillars and pendulums in a blend of circus, acrobatics, playground games and trust exercises described by the The Stage as “spellbinding”.
Set in the round with the audience drawn in close to the action, the five performers are enclosed within the circle of the stage. Together they face a series of challenges as poles are balanced on fingertips, hung from the roof, swung, lashed, climbed up and clung to – the action veering from catastrophe to mastery.
Within this teetering world they push and support each other as they wrestle with the moment when things begin to shift. They must decide whether to rail against the chaos or ride it out, allowing life to tilt towards the tipping point.
Tipping Point features a multi-layered surround sound musical landscape composed by Adem Ilhan and Quinta, who have previously worked with Hot Chip, Bat For Lashes and Philip Selway of Radiohead.
