The aerial brilliance of Ockham’s Razor (above) is making a welcome return to Lancaster University this autumn.

The company whose last show was a sell-out when it was performed on the campus has created a new promenade performance where the audience form part of the stage as the action unfolds around them.

Not Until We Are Lost has been co-commissioned by Live at LICA and Ockham’s Razor plan to work with a local community choir which will perform an 
original score by Graham Fitkin at the performances which run from October 20 - 24.

The Ockham’s event is just part of a packed season of theatrical treats at Live at LICA this autumn/winter. Other highlights include Company Chameleon who will perform a free outdoor dance performance in Lancaster city centre and also on campus on October 5.

The Manchester-based company has based its hour-long show around celebrity culture; one person has it and the other strives to get it by appearing on a gameshow with all that entails.

The performance is for one night only, on November 1 and is suitable for 14 years and over.

Total Football is a satirical look at England’s favourite game.

Co-commissioned by the Barbican in London this comic piece has attracted fantastic reviews, most of which say that you don’t need to like football to enjoy it. Ridiculusmus’s show, Total Football – More Beckett than Beckham is on at Live at LICA on November 13 and 14.

The following night Vincent Dance Theatre will be performing Motherland, a fun and accessible piece about womanhood and what women really want.

The dancers plan to work with Beaumont College and young mums in Morecambe prior to creating their unique performance.

Rajni Shah Projects will also be taking to the streets of Lancaster to recruit people to read monologues at their show Glorious at the Nuffield on December 1.

They are looking for musicians to take part in the project. For details visit www.liveatlica.org.
