Circus meets sculpture in this exciting new out-door show from Ockham’s Razor, winners of the Total Theatre & Jacksons Lane Award for Circus at the Edinburgh Fringe.

The performers, like surfers on a wild sea, ride a giant semi-circular see-saw made of wood and steel which creaks and groans as it transforms from a catapult, a gently rocking cradle, a tunnel, a slide - creating an ever changing land and soundscape.

The concept of the belly of the whale is found in mythology around the world - what happens when we confront our fears and come face to face with the power and momentum of things we seemingly can’t change?

"there's something magical about Ockham's Razor” Evening Standard

“Britain’s most innovative aerial theatre group” Total Theatre

“Ockham's Razor is a hugely promising young aerial company who don't just have superb circus skills, but also highly creative brains.” The Guardian
