Classic Literature and Circus Collide in Accessible Performance of Tess

A groundbreaking adaptation of Thomas Hardy’s classic novel Tess of the D’Urbervilles will be audio described and BSL interpreted on Thursday (Feb.1).

Classic literature and circus collide in Tess as Ockham’s Razor, in association with Mime London, weaves together words and the extreme physicality of circus to tell this tale of power, loss and endurance.

Ockham’s Razor is a contemporary circus company who combine circus and visual theatre to make work that is arresting and entertaining.

Against a backdrop of projections, the cast wield wooden planks, climb shifting walls and move through ropes and swathes of linen to evoke the vast landscapes and interior worlds of Hardy’s Wessex at Sadler's Wells’ Peacock Theatre in London.

Thursday’s performance will be audio described with a Touch Tour at 6:15pm for blind and partially sighted ticket holders and their companions. The performance will also be BSL interpreted.
