Catch a unique narrative using gymnastics and metal poles
Aerial theatre company Ockham’s Razor bring their new production Tipping Point to Cambridge Corn Exchange this month. Taking place 13-15 May, the show features five performers, enclosed in a circle in the middle of the audience, using just their own bodies and a set of simple metal poles to weave their narrative.
The metal poles become aids for jaw-dropping gymnastic feats: climbed on, hung from, lashed, leapt between and balanced from fingertips; becoming forests, crossroads and pendulums – with the performers ever tilting towards the tipping point.
The show, described as “physically thrilling” by The Sunday Times, features a multilayered surround sound musical landscape especially composed by Adem Ilhan and Quinta, who have previously worked with Radiohead, Hot Chip and Bat For Lashes.
Tickets are £17.50 and family tickets (4 people) are £37.50.
