Part of our Festa Fiesta programme at Great Yarmouth Arts Festival.

Ockham’s Razor return with their new show Tipping Point, winner of the Total Theatre & Jacksons Lane Circus Award at Edinburgh Festival 2016.

A mesmerising piece of contemporary circus, Tipping Point is set in the round with the audience drawn in close to the action. The five performers are  enclosed within the circle of the stage,  transforming simple metal poles into a rich landscape of images.  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 especially composed by Adem Ilhan & Quinta who have previously worked with Philip Selway of Radiohead, Hot Chip and Bat For Lashes.
