January 10 - June 16, 2013 UK
NOT UNTIL WE ARE LOST, the new show by Ockham's Razor, will open the London International MIME Festival (Jan 10-12) and then be touring the UK in 2013. 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. 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 and features a 20 strong choir from the local community put together especially for the show. 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. Running time 60 minutes (no interval)
Produced by Turtle Key Arts, Devised & Directed by Ockham’s Razor
Performed by Alex Harvey, Tina Koch, Charlotte Mooney, Haike Irina Amelia Stollbrock & Luke Horley.
Musical composition: Graham Fitkin, Live musician: Ruth Wall, Equipment design: Ockham’s Razor, Design & Costumes: Bicat & Rigby, Lighting design: Phil Supple

May 18 & June 11, 2013 Bournemouth & London, UK
THE ART OF DEFINING ME, a new dance film by Seeta Patel, Kamala Devam and Maria Akesson.  In a tick box society where art has become a commodity, this film sees them take a humorous look at how they as artists are influenced by the expectations and definitions placed upon them. Who puts us in these boxes? Society, institutions, individuals or ourselves? Not a simple retaliation, the work observes and comments upon how we embody these expectations to find a certain safety and solace in them, almost enjoying them. But what happens to us when the box becomes our home?
The project has been co-commissioned by Pavilion Dance South West and South East Dance, and funded by Arts Council England. Other supporters include; Swindon Dance, Rich Mix, Akademi, Asian Arts Agency and the Arts University College Bournemouth.
