Following the sell-out success of The Mill, Ockham’s Razor return with their second full-length performance Not Until We Are Lost.
The show uses aerial movement to create atmospheric, exciting physical theatre in a series of short stories which explore what it is to be lost.
Not Until We Are Lost brings the audience into the heart of the action and for this reason it plays to a capacity of 100 when it visits the New Wolsey Theatre. The performance is viewed in new, innovative ways from within a unique set, featuring originally designed aerial structures. The images unfold above and around the audience as they journey through the narrative.
The aerial sculptures transform around the audience creating physically and emotionally affecting environments. These shifts in perspective and gravity question how solid, how fixed, is the world around us?
Not Until We Are Lost has an original score from composer Graham Fitkin (twice winner British Composer awards) and features a 20 strong choir created from the local community .
The title comes from the Henry David Thoreau quote “not until we are lost do we begin to find ourselves”. Sometimes you need a shift in perspective to find your way.
