New-circus stars Ockham’s Razor make a welcomed return to Dance City
Ockham’s Razor return to Dance City following a sell out performance of their last full length performance, The Mill, with their latest piece of new-circus theatre.
Their new full length production is an exciting physical theatre production that immerses the audience right in the heart of the performance, watching the story and images unfold around you on stage.
Not Until We are Lost is a series of short stories that explore what its like to be lost. The company use moving sculpture and original aerial structures to create environments that will place the audience in the middle of the action, while the performance shifts your perspective of the environment and how solid and fixed the world is around us.
Not Until We are Lost has an original score from composer Graham Fitkin (twice winner at the British Composer Awards) and will feature a 20 strong choir brought together especially for this show from participants of The Sage Gateshead.
Ockham’s Razor are an aerial theatre company who combine circus and visual theatre to create interesting and entertaining work. They specialise in creating physical theatre on original pieces of aerial equipment and create stories from the vulnerability, trust and reliance that live between people in the air.
Ockham’s Razor previous sell out production The Mill, received raved reviews from audiences and critics with their unique design and build of a large wheel made from wood and steel which was suspended on a seven metre high rig with a link system of ropes and wooden drums creating an exciting set.
The title of their new production comes from the Henry David Thoreau quote ‘not until we are lost do we begin to find ourselves’. Sometimes you need a shift in perspective to find your way.
