Tipping Point was performed as part of the London International Mime Festival in 11-23 January 2016 at The Platform Theatre, Kings Cross.
"Ockham’s Razor return with their new full length show. Tipping Point is set in the round; the audience drawn in close, as the action veers from catastrophe to mastery. The five performers, enclosed within the circle of the stage, transform simple 5 metre metal poles into a rich landscape of images.
Poles are balanced on fingertips, hung from the roof, lashed, climbed, swung from and walked along, they become forests, cross roads and pendulums. The performers balance, climb and cling to this teetering world, supporting each other as they wrestle with the moment when things begin to shift. They must decide whether to rail against the chaos, struggling to exert order on a disordered world, or ride it out, allowing life to tilt towards the tipping point.
Tipping Point features a live performance of a multi-layered surround sound musical landscape especially composed by Adem Ilham & Quinta who have previously worked with Radiohead, Hot Chip and Bat For Lashes. The performance sound will be mixed live and feature violin and the saw played live."
