Mimbre’s new outdoor production Lifted is a collection of funny, poetic and surprising moments, which explore in different ways 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.
Teaming up with three guest choreographers, Yi-Chun Liu, HURyCAN and Gary Clarke, this captivating performance experiments with new approaches to Mimbre’s trademark acrobatics. Lifted mixes dance, theatre and circus to celebrate the expressions and impressions that appear when three strong women move, lift and balance each other.
Yi-Chun Liu (Taiwan/Belgium) from Peeping Tom with her otherworldly mix of martial arts, dance and theatrical movement.
Arthur and Candelaria from HURyCAN (Spain/Argentina/France) with their powerful and energetic approach to dance and acrobatic lifts.
Gary Clarke (UK), famous for his maverick, dynamic and theatrical approach to contemporary dance.
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 Week, Lifted takes Mimbre back to its roots, creating world-famous, nuanced and breath-taking outdoor theatre.
