I am working on an exciting collaboration this autumn - Monteverdi's L'Orfeo - A Royal Opera and Roundhouse Co-production in association with East London Dance.

Last weekend (12th and 13th January) the Roundhouse (or at least its Studio Theatre) saw bodies being lifted, legs floating in the air and arm muscles being put under quite some pressure - as mimbre and our Acrobatics Masterclass participants took over the space. We worked on dynamic partner and group work involving lifts, jumps and throws as well as inverted positions and more challenging acrobatic moves such as somersaults, banquine and tumbling. Furthermore we explored a range of specialised acrobatics and acrobalance techniques from mimbre’s repertoire of tricks, looked at creative and innovative approaches to choreographing acrobatics and worked on strategies for how to train, work and maintain your body optimally for the extreme impact of acrobatics training.

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.
