Circus meets sculpture in this exciting new show from Ockham”s Razor, winners of the Total Theatre Award for Circus at Edinburgh 2016.

The performers, like surfers in a wild sea, ride a giant semi-circular see-saw made of wood and steel which creaks and groans as it transforms from a catapult, a gently rocking cradle, a tunnel, a slide – creating an ever changing land and soundscape.

The concept of the belly of the whale is found in mythology around the world – what happens when we confront our fears and come face to face with the power and momentum of things we seemingly can”t change?
