"One of the many bonuses of this co production between child-focused company Theatre Rites and aerialists Ockham’s Razor is the profound pleasure it takes in physical movement, in the agility and grace of its performers precariously balancing on three giant interconnected triangles."

About the Show

A co-production between Theatre-Rites, Ockham's Razor and Lyric Hammersmith in association with York Theatre Royal.

Hang On was directed by Sue Buckmaster, music was composed by Olly Fox, mobile design by Ockham's Razor and object design by Tina Bicat.

As a giant mobile tantalizingly appears above the stage, Hang On catapults you into an aerial world of dizzying new thrills where the impossible becomes possible.

"If you want to take all your extended family along to one show this year, take them to see Hang On at the Lyric Hammersmith. Tumbling along through a delicately balanced mobile of Charlie Chaplin charm and virtuoso circus play, this piece will lift one and all above the mundane into a world of infinite and childlike possibility."
