Young People’s Activities

As followers of our blog know, our talented young acrobats from the Mimbre Youth Company have been selected to take part in RIOT OFFspring, at London's  famous dance venue Sadler's Wells. RIOT OFFspring is a unique collaboration between five international choreographers – Sébastien Ramirez, Ivan Blackstock (BirdGang), Simeon Qysea (BirdGang), Mafalda Deville and Pascal Merighi (Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch) – and an intergenerational cast, brought together to create a unique dance piece with a live orchestra playing Igor Stravinsky’s iconic The Rite of Spring. How exciting!

We had a wonderful time at our first Collective Movement Festival the weekend before Easter and thank everybody, especially all our young people, the volunteers and the numerous audience members who together helped make it such a great success! Also, we'd like to thank everybody for the nice feedback and supporting our aim to raise more money over the coming months to secure the continuation of our acrobatics youth classes. 

Over the half term Mimbre had lots of different activities and projects taking place: Mimbre Youth (The Step Up Group) started working on the "Riot Offspring" performance with Sadler’s Wells Theatre. We also ran street dance, acrobatics and choreography workshops to 13-19 years old as part of Discover Young Hackney and five of our young people took part in the Nation Youth Circus Event with Circus Space.

Classes for Young People Mimbre offers classes for young people in Hackney to learn acrobatics and street dance in a safe, fun and supportive environment with professional artists.  Scroll down for full details! The classes are free but you need to book a place as there are limited...

We at mimbre are so proud of our youth group, the Step Up group, who delivered a fantastic performance last Friday at Hackney Empire as part of the Discover Young Hackney Festival! VERY WELL DONE EVERYBODY!!! Below is a sneak review of the last instructions and back-stage preparations for the performance and the dress rehearsal on stage!
