PUBLIC is a new outdoor performance from ground-breaking circus company Ockham’s Razor about the ownership of public space. Urban space has become increasingly colonised by corporations with our malls, shopping centres and transport hubs being owned and policed by private interests. In this landscape there is less space for young people, to take up public space - to experiment, play, rest together and build social bonds with their peers. Play has become a risky and subversive act.
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.
Please note: this event takes place in Theatre Square (the space outside the front of the New Wolsey Theatre, above the Spiral Car Park).
