A Pinch of Salt

'Tipping Point'

Performed by
Ockham’s Razor

“Thrilling aerial theatre from the trailblazing, Ockham’s Razor.";  Metro

What They Say :
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.

What We Say :
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 Exhibition Hall at the Royal Cornwall Showground, there will be a Licensed Bar and Street Food available at the show.

Doors open 6.30pm
Show finishes approximately 9.30pm
