If you enjoy aerobatic stunts, see award-winning show Tipping Point when it swings into Stratford Circus on Thursday.

The theatrical circus sees five artists pivot and dangle from ceiling-suspended, five-metre-long poles in a dramatic personification of life on the edge.

Audiences can expect daredevil displays over a small performance space transformed into walkways, spindles, pillars and pendulums.

A winner of the Jacksons Lane Award for Circus at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2016, Tipping Point is performed by the UK’s leading aerial theatre company, Ockham’s Razor.

It will be accompanied by an atmospheric musical score from artists Adem Ilhan and Quinta, who have previously worked with Radiohead, Hot Chip and Bat For Lashes.

This is the show’s final London tour outing, which plays at Stratford Circus from November 23 to 25.

Tickets £10 to £15. 7pm starts, plus 2pm matinee on Saturday.
