British aerial theatre company Ockham's Razor combine circus and visual theatre to make work that is arresting and entertaining, performing on especially designed props: a suspended raft made from a grid of scaffolding, inhabited by the survivors of a wreck; a rigid metal portrait frame through which Death dances a young woman to her grave; a length of rope on pulleys creating a game of counterbalance and tenuous trust.
