Tipping point is the set in the round; the audience is drawn in close, as the action veers from catastrophe to mastery. The five performers, enclosed within the circle of the stage, transform simple metal poles into a rich landscape of images.
Poles are balanced on fingertips, hung from the roof, lashed, climbed, swung from and walked along, they become forests, cross roads and pendulums. The performers balance, climb and cling to this teetering world, supporting each other as they wrestle with the moment when things begin to shift. They must decide whether to rail against the chaos, struggling to exert order on a disordered world, or ride it out, allowing life to tilt towards the tipping point.
Tipping point features a multi-layered surround sound musical landscape especially composed by Adem Ilhan and Quinta who have previously worked with Philip Selway of Radiohead, Hot Chip and Bat For Lashes.
