Ockham’s Razor

Belly of the Whale 



Circus meets sculpture in this exciting new show for audiences of all ages. The performers, like surfers on a wild sea, ride a giant semi-circular see-saw made of wood and steel which creaks and groans as it transforms from a catapult, a gently rocking cradle, a tunnel, a slide – creating an ever-changing land and soundscape.
