    Arguably a transitional piece for the company as they went from short-format work (collected in their Triple Bill) to a full-length performance, The Mill nonetheless continues Ockham's Razor's practice of devising performances around specially created pieces of aerial equipment – here a giant turning wheel of wood and banded steel, the mill of the title, which serves as an oppressive workplace for the show's characters. Since creating The Mill the company have made another piece, Not Until We Are Lost, which is less representational than its predecessor and as a result perhaps more successful, but The Mill remains a large, ambitious work from one of the UK's leading companies.
