Hounslow residents - tell us what you think and get £20. The Bell Square programme wants to hear from local people about their views of Belly of the Whale. You need to be 16 or over, be happy to receive some information about the show in advance, able to watch the performance at 3pm on 8 September and then come to an informal discussion group at Hounslow Arts Centre the next day at 3pm. Expenses of £20 each available for everyone who watches the show and comes to the discussion. If you would like to take part contact sarah@sarahboilingassociates for more details.

Circulate Resident Artists Ockham’s Razor present their exciting 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
