THIS PERFORMANCE TOOK PLACE IN 2008 RUNNING TIME: 65 MINS NO INTERVAL A triple bill of dance: Arc, Memento Mori & Every Action… Ockham’s Razor is an award winning aerial theatre company who combine circus, dance and visual theatre to make work that is arresting and entertaining. They specialise in creating physical theatre on original pieces of aerial equipment and create stories from the vulnerability, trust and reliance that exists between people in the air. Arc examines the instability of a triangle where relationships form and break apart and explores the experience of isolation in close proximity. Every Action…is a playful look at the bonds that form when people are thrown together. Four strangers meet before twenty-five metres of suspended rope. As they explore this elevated set of scales, they discover a world where everything you do will affect someone, somewhere. Memento Mori is an award winning, powerful duet performed on a suspended metal frame. It is based on Holbein’s woodcuts of “The Dance of Death”, where death is represented as a skeleton that dances each of us to our grave. Performers: Charlotte Mooney, Alex Harvey, Tina Koch and Sandro Spanu “daring aerial theatre” - The Independent “physically thrilling” - The Sunday Times
