Belly of the Whale
Part of Greenwich Fair
23 - 24 June 2018
Duration: 40 minutes
Circus meets sculpture in this new show by award-winning Ockham’s Razor. Like surfers on a wild sea, the performers ride a giant see-saw which creaks and groans as it transforms from a catapult to a gently rocking cradle, a tunnel, a slide – creating an ever-changing land and soundscape.
Winners of the Total Theatre & Jacksons Lane Award for Circus at the Edinburgh Fringe 2016.
Part of Greenwich Fair, 23-24 June. GDIF’s annual family-friendly weekend which is chock-full of incredible theatre, dance, street arts and circus from the UK and Europe.
There is step-free access to the performance location in Cutty Sark Gardens. The most direct route is from the north side of Cutty Sark Gardens, near the Foot Tunnel. Or else you can access the performance level at the entrance to Cutty Sark Gardens from Greenwich Church Street (near M&S and the Gipsy Moth Pub).
This area will be marked with a flag or sign – please ask a GDIF Volunteer if you’re not sure where to go. There will be some limited seating provided, too.
