Our Mimbre Artists are on the big stages in London this autumn: Co-founder and Joint Artistic Director Emma Norin stars in The Light Princess at National Theatre which brings together iconic singer-songwriterTori Amos with playwright Samuel Adamson and director Marianne Elliott (Curious Incident, War Horse) in a spectacular coming-of-age story. A dark fairytale...

As I hope you have already seen on this blog and our facebook and twitter, Mimbre Youth Company, our most advanced acrobatics and street dance group, were part of an amazing performance project at Sadler's Wells this summer: RIOT Offspring, a unique collaboration between five international choreographers: Sébastian...

Over the past few weeks we had performances of Until Now and Falling Up at City of London Festival, Woking Dance Festival, at Laban, at Alnwick Gardens, at Birmingham Hippodrome and at Appetite in Stoke-on-Trent. We enjoyed each and every one of them very much and would therefore like to share with you some more visual impressions of our summer tour (thanks a lot to Oleg Katchinski and Paul Liversage for sending us their photos)!

Unfortunately the weather wasn't very kind to us last Saturday at the Dalston Children's Festival. Due to heavy wind and rain the performance of "Falling Up" had to be stopped half-way through - the set nearly flew off and it would have been too dangerous for the performers to continue on the slippery ground. Sadly, the acrobatics and street dance workshops that were supposed to take place after "Falling Up" also had to be cancelled. But at least our youth group got to perform everything they had prepared for the festival before the weather got worse!

Have a look at the photos below for some impressions of our windy performances!
