Mimbre: Lifted

Free event: Book a Ticket

All-female acrobatic theatre company Mimbre bring their new outdoor production. Lifted mixes dance, theatre and circus to celebrate the expressions and impressions that appear when three strong women move, lift and balance each other. 

A collection of funny, poetic and surprising moments Lifted explores what it means when one body is carried by another. Or when one person carries two people. Or when a person doesn't want to be carried. Or when three people find the perfect balance.

The need for human touch has been much discussed through the pandemic, making the constant presence of physical contact and trust in Lifted even more powerful.

Created in collaboration with three guest choreographers - Yi-Chun Liu from Peeping Tom, HURyCAN and Gary Clarke - this captivating performance experiments with new approaches to Mimbre’s trademark acrobatics. 

Following the success of the national tours of The Exploded Circus and If I could I would, as well as a number of exciting collaborations, including the Dior Haute Couture Show at Paris Fashion Weekend and the BBC Arts commission film The Sofa Dance, Lifted takes Mimbre back to its roots, creating world-famous, nuanced and breath-taking outdoor theatre.
