Ockham’s Razor’s ‘This Time’ is a show about time, age and the stories we tell ourselves.
With a cast ranging in age from 13 to 60, This Time uses the imagery of circus, autobiographical storytelling and original equipment design to create compelling visual theatre which looks at perceptions of strength and ability: how we are strong in different ways at different times in our lives.
Featuring a series of aerial frames which are raised from floor to ceiling the four performers lift, push and cradle each other through a world of windows, thresholds and ledges. Bodies are suspended high in the air and swung close to the ground in innovative new takes on trapeze and swinging cradle.
Age suitability: 8+ Features emotive content
