The frankly incredible Ockham’s Razor make the kind of aerial theatre that combines athleticism with creativity and they’re bringing their new production ‘This Time’ to Dance City in May.

This show is all about time, age and the stories we tell ourselves. It’s a show about transformation, about what changes within us and what remains. And it is a show about bearings – about looking up and seeing where we are, the power of that awareness and whether we can use it to help each other. 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 an innovative new take on doubles trapeze. Expect ground-breaking design alongside the most compelling of stories.

This Time, Thursday 23-Sunday 26 May, Dance City, Temple Street, Newcastle, 7.30pm (2pm on Sunday), £16.50/£13 conc (£8 students/U18s). dancecity.co.uk
