The Tipping Point

Leave your expectations at the door as Ockham's Razor blends circus, acrobatics and theatre.

By Benjamen Judd

Coming to Sydney exclusively for the Sydney Festival, UK circus troupe Ockham’s Razor will be defying gravity and physics in their show Tipping Point. 

Running from January 17 until January 21, Ockham’s Razor will be transforming the Spaghetti Circus Big Top in Parramatta into a mind-blowing performance space five metres above the ground.

Pushing themselves to both physical and mental limits, experience an adrenalin rush as they OR crew risk life and limb across a myriad of walkways, pillars and pendulums in a blend of circus, acrobatics, playground games and trust exercises described by the The Stage as “spellbinding”. 

It’s a nail-biting night that will leave you breathless, exhilarated and even a little exhausted. And totally worth every second of anxiety. 

The Sydney Festival has become one of the biggest city-wide festivals in the country – a celebration of performance, art, creative endeavour and all things weird and entertaining. 

Since it was first launched in 1977, it has gone on to expand outwards to include many of the city’s fringe suburbs and cultural hubs. Today, the program comprises around 370 performances and around 100 events performed by over 700 artists in more than 30 venues each year. Inclusive programming, a broad range of free events and accessible pricing policies for the ticketed shows means that Sydney Festival is open to all, welcoming Sydneysiders and visitors from wherever they live. 

For more information, including ticketing, head to the official Sydney Festival website. For help getting to the Spaghetti Circus Big Top, ask our friendly front desk team for transport options.
