“The Mill is the first full-length show from hot young aerial theatre company Ockham’s Razor” – The Stage

“an engaging and ingenious piece of work”
- The Financial Times

“aerial artistry…with ingenuity and theatrical flair” - The Times

“There’s no shortage of risk and split second timing as they roll, spin and flail on the wheel, but it’s the narrative line that carries you through” -  The Observer

“incredible, striking images.” – Total Theatre

Premeire - Jan 2010 (The London International Mime Festival, The Linbury Studio, Royal Opera House)

5 performers. 60 minutes.

A large wheel made of wood and steel 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 its effects are unpredictable and dramatic.

The ensemble co-devised the show with Toby Sedgwick (Olivier Award for Best Theatre Choreographer for War Horse) who also directed the show . Dramaturgy is by Rufus Norris (winner of The Evening Standard Award for Best Director).
