Ockham's Razor presents Belly of the Whale

  • Theatre Square, Stratford E15 1BX (map)


Theatre Square, Stratford, London Borough of Newham E15 1BX

Saturday 5 May 2018

2pm & 5pm

Circulate Resident Artists Ockham’s Razor present their first show made specifically for outdoors.

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

Belly of the Whale is commissioned by Without Walls, Stockton International Riverside Festival, Greenwich + Docklands International Festival, Out There International Festival of Circus & Street Arts, Norfolk & Norwich Festival, Salisbury International Arts Festival, Circulate and Stratford Circus Arts Centre.
