Keisha communicates with her reclusive dad through books, letters and symbols. But when the letters stop coming she is forced to venture into his world.

Ockham's Razor and Contact: Switch + Tipping Point

Inspired by aerial circus, breakdown, 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.
