Airborne stills from the acrobatic theatre company's productions

Arc: Aerialists Ockham's Razor hang out in their natural habitatNik Mackey

These photographs shows Ockham's Razor in performance. While there is a fierce kinetic energy to their work, photography captures something of its still beauty.

The images come from four shows they have devised and performed on their own - Memento Mori (2004) Every Action... (2005), Arc (2007) and The Mill (2010) - and Hang On (2008), created in collaboration with Theatre-Rites.

All images by Nik Mackey unless stated.
