If you’re up for a story, told through original acrobatics, then get ready for the latest tour from Ockham’s Razor. This summer, they’ll be hitting the road to bring you their ground-breaking production, This Time.
And if you haven’t seen a production by Ockham’s Razor before, you’re in for a treat. With a cast ranging from 13 to 60 years old, This Time examines common perceptions of strength and age: how we are strong in different ways at different times in our lives.
This Time uses circus, autobiographical storytelling and original equipment design, to create a compelling piece of visual theatre. The performance will feature innovative aerial acrobatics, with Ockham Razor’s take on the trapeze and swinging cradle. The cast will lift, push and cradle each other over thresholds and ledges. They will explore the tangible differences between each other whilst suspended high in the air and swung close to the ground.
This Time highlights the immense physical and emotional changes we undergo over a lifetime. It looks at how we navigate pivotal moments and fight feelings of love, care and frustration alongside our desire for independence and our yearning for support. The production plays with the tussle between generations, within families and even within ourselves.
Who are Ockham’s Razor?

It features a 360-degree rotating frame, spinning harness cradle, and a cloud-trapeze hybrid for four performers. With This Time, Ockham’s Razor are certainly continuing to push the boundary of aerial acrobatics.
