7 May @ 12:00 pm - 8 May @ 3:30 pm


Ockham’s Razor produced by Turtle Key Arts and in partnership with National Centre of Circus Arts present PUBLIC.

Commissioned by NCCA & The Lowry, Salford, supported by Ciromedia and funded by Arts Council England PUBLIC is a new outdoor performance about the ownership of public space, which has become increasingly colonised by corporations.

In PUBLIC ten young acrobats and dancers will create an image of a reality where they are able to be utterly without guard in a public arena. Incorporating acrobatics, parkour and dance they move through the architecture of the streets, lifting each other over and around walls, stairs, obstacles – dancing with the fabric of the world. The show is about support, freedom and tenderness and asks how and where we can be uninhibited and unbound.

“Ockham’s Razor is a hugely promising young aerial company who don’t just have superb circus skills, but also highly creative brains.” The Guardian

“Physically thrilling” The Sunday Times

Sat 7th & Sun 8th of May – 12pm & 3pm. A free performance in The Lowry Plaza
