This Time by Ockham’s Razor has announced a new tour for this summer.
With a cast ranging from 13 to 60 years old, This Time examines common perceptions of strength and age: how we are strong in different ways at different times in our lives.
The piece will tour across venues between June and July this autumn.
Using circus, autobiographical storytelling and original equipment design This Time is a compelling piece of visual theatre featuring stunning aerial acrobatics.
Four performers lift, push and cradle each other over thresholds and ledges, exploring the tangible differences between each other as bodies are suspended high in the air and swung close to the ground in innovative takes on trapeze and swinging cradle.
Highlighting the immense physical and emotional changes we undergo over a lifetime, This Time looks at how we navigate pivotal moments and fight feelings of love, care and frustration alongside our desire for independence and our yearning for support. The production plays with the tussle between generations, within families and even within ourselves.
