mimbre's youth group, the Step-Up Group, were very proud to be selected to take part in the One Hackney Festival and its colourful street parade on July 21st, celebrating the Olympic Torch arriving to our borough! In the parade the Step-Up group presented extracts of their brand new show: "Origin London" –  an action-packed performance fusing street-dance and acrobatics and celebrating the flavours and diversity that make London our home, all performed by a cast of talented young people from Hackney!

Time flies - we are now more than half-way through this summer's tour of our new show "Falling Up"! The weather hasn't always been the best and so some performances unfortunately needed to be cancelled at the last minute... but we still had a great time over the past few weeks and are very proud of Falling Up's success and reception! We got amazing feedback and lots of lovely comments from you, our various audiences - so we'd like to share some of them here with everyone! "Fantastic show - I loved its sense of fun, its simplicity and its lack of pretension, it made it really accessible for me. I am also so encouraged to see dancers who are beautiful and extraordinary in unconventional ways, so much more engaging than more conventional troupes. Loved how much the dancers were clearly enjoying themselves - made me grin the whole performance through."

It’s my first week as General Manager (Maternity Cover) at Mimbre and I’m delighted to join this inventive, inspiring, friendly company at an exciting stage of their development. With a busy Summer of touring underway, and plans for Autumn taking shape, it feels like a good time to join.

Latest tour stop: Sotteville-les-Rouen, France Over the past weekend we presented "Falling Up" at "Viva Cite" in Sotteville-les-Rouen - where we had a great time despite all the rain! Viva Cite is one of the oldest street theatre festivals in Europe and attracts every year big audiences, so we are very proud to have been among the performing groups this year!
