Join us for a family circus experience like no other with new work developed by Ockham’s Razor with young people from North Manchester, alongside awardwinning show Tipping Point.
Switch has been created by a group of young people and the artistic directors of Ockham’s Razor. Inspired by aerial circus, breakdance, martial arts and Shaolin stick fighting, Switch creates a shifting landscape of labyrinths, pathways and barriers to explore themes of division and integration.
Tipping Point sees five outstanding aerial performers enclosed within the circle of the stage, transforming long metal poles into a rich landscape of images. Poles are balanced, hung from the roof, swung, climbed up and clung to high above the audience, veering from catastrophe to mastery.
This event takes place at Upper Campfield Market
Upper Campfield Market Hall, Campfield Arcade, Deansgate, Manchester, M3 4FN
Switch is commissioned by Contact, with funding from Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation.
Tipping Point is produced by Turtle Key Arts and commissioned by London International Mime Festival and The Lowry.
