Company News

Mimbre are inviting applications from aspiring performers who are interested in joining our professional development programme.  Traineeships are available for London-based 18-25 year olds, who are able to commit to our Acrobatics and Acrobalance Masterclass on 12 and 13 January, and regular training on Tuesday evenings between 15 January and end of April 2013.

Not only within the arts world there is a continuous discussion about the impact of the arts, their "purpose" and "use" for a society or an individual as well as about the ways to measure this and to quantify an obviously very personal experience. We would like to extend this discussion to you out there and collect information on the impact that our work has... on individuals, on communities and on the wider circus and performing arts sector alike. This is not just out of curiosity and the wish to interact with our audiences, but serves a specific purpose: It will help us to continue making work that you enjoy!

We have been very busy over the summer with our latest show "Falling Up" touring across the UK and Europe as well as with our education programme culminating in a tour of our Step-Up group, the most dedicated and committed participants across all our classes for young people. We are very proud of our achievements in both our professional and our participatory projects and thank everybody who supported our work along the way.

Time really just flies - this summer's tour of "Falling Up" has already come to an end!!! The last couple of weeks were busy with our last performances at the National Theatre, the Mintfest (Kendal's International Festival of Outdoor Arts) and Pique-Nique Kerhorres - On the Bridge in Northern France...  we can't really believe yet that the summer is over! But we are very proud of Falling Up's successful tour and very happy with all the great feedback we got along the way, from audience members, producers, bookers and festival managers alike!

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!
