In January we left cold and rainy London behind and took Tipping Point to Sydney Festival. We were part of Circus City in Parramatta and shared the tent of the wonderful Spaghetti Circus with Circa. With a sweltering 40 degrees outside we were eternally grateful for the air conditioning!

The show was warmly received and we especially loved this review from Katie Lavers

We try to connect with the local community wherever we go and as part of Sydney Festivals Circus City we were able to offer two workshops and a masterclass.

Workshop Nr.1 was one of our ‘Arial for All’ workshops inviting people of all ages who identify as disabled. We had a great time playing with a wonderfully diverse group involving acro-balance, trapeze, rope and harness counterweighting. One participant’s parent wrote this blog post about her observations and she really has a point.

Workshop Nr.2 was one of our signature 3 day Aerial theatre workshops for circus professionals which offers the chance to share the unique process Ockham’s Razor use to create the rich imagery our shows are famous for.

Charlotte ran a one day seminar and masterclass for directors, movement directors, dramaturgs and choreographers with an interest in creating work using circus.

And last but not least our producer Ali King was invited to be on a panel discussing Circus and Access whilst in Sydney as part of the festival.

We had a fantastic time in Sydney and it was wonderful to have the opportunity to meet with the Australian circus community to make new friendships and connections for the future.

Back in London Tina spent another two days in the rehearsal studio with the wonderful Eleni and Nathan from Levantes Dance who will premier their show ‘The Band’ at Jacksons Lane in March. Tina also kick started the devising module Ockham’s Razor are teaching for National Centre for Circus Arts 2nd year degree students which will culminate in Charlotte and Tina directing their 2nd year ensemble show.
