Public is a new performance from ground-breaking circus company Ockham’s Razor about the ownership of public space.

In the current landscape, there is less room for young people to take up public space – to experiment, play and rest together.

In Public, ten young performers use acrobatics, parkour and dance as they move through 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.

 

Access: 

Gallowtree Gate is an open shopping street in the middle of the city centre, with wide, flat, open areas and dropped kerb access available. If you have any concerns over access or need to request some additional provisions to assist you in attending this performance please contact Lisa@artreach.org.uk
