Within a teetering world, Ockham’s Razor push and support each other as they wrestle the uncertainty of ever shifting moments. In that second, they must decide whether to rail against the chaos, or ride it out; allowing life to tilt towards the tipping point. Set in the round with the audience drawn in close to the action, five performers – enclosed within the circle of the stage – transform 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 upon, and clung to; the action veering from catastrophe to mastery.


Wow! Was our first response to this show, followed by a sharp intake of breath. Featuring a multi-layered surround sound musical landscape composed by Adem Ilhan & Quinta who have previous worked with Philip Selway (Radiohead), Hot Chip, and Bat for Lashes, Tipping Point is a visual and aural feast that will leave you, just as it did us, stunned and breathless. Set in the huge event hall at Royal Cornwall Showground, there will be a bar and street food available at the show.


Why not join the company for Ockham’s Razor physical skills workshops on Wednesday the 16th August (choice of 2 workshops – Aerial or ground-based Acro-Balance) and then 3 more ground-based Acro-Balance workshops on Thursday 17th, Friday 18th and Saturday 19th all 10.30 am ‘til noon each day.
