Ockham’s Razor create daring physical theatre on aerial equipment specially created for each new show.
For The Mill we have designed and built a large wheel made of wood and steel. It is suspended from a 7 metre high rig and links into a system of ropes and wooden drums creating an exciting set on stage. The system is powered by the performers using their strength and weight creating a precarious world where a seemingly small decision or action can gather momentum and impetus beyond our control. By turns treadmill and pleasure wheel, the system is the vehicle for a roller-coaster ride through every human emotion and it’s effects are unpredictable and dramatic.
The ensemble co-devised the show with Toby Sedgwick (founder member of 1980’s cult group Moving Picture Mime Show, and most recent winner of the Olivier Award for Best Theatre Choreographer for the National Theatre’s hit production, War Horse) who also directed the show . Dramaturgy is by Rufus Norris (recent winner of The Evening Standard Award for Best Director).
