    A show about time, age and the stories we tell ourselves from the award winning circus theatre company Ockham's Razor

    With a cast ranging in age from 13 to 60 This Time looks at perceptions of strength and ability: how we are strong in different ways at different times in our lives. It is a show about transformation, about what changes within us and what remains. And it is a show about bearings - about looking up and seeing where we are, the power of that awareness and whether we can use it to help each other.

    Featuring a series of aerial frames which are raised from floor to ceiling the four performers lift, push and cradle each other through a world of windows, thresholds and ledges. Bodies are suspended high in the air and swung close to the ground in an innovative new take on doubles trapeze.

    This Time uses the imagery of circus to create genuine theatre; ground-breaking design alongside compelling stories.
