Just as 2013 is kicking in proper I wanted to take the last chance to take a brief look back on all I achieved in 2012 - both with mimbre and together with other companies or artists. For me it was an exciting and busy year, lots that I learned and lots that I am proud of.  Working as a choreographer and director with a variety of artists and companies refreshed my perspective of how exciting our art-form can be, made me appreciate what I know and what I know really well, and helped to over again re-ignited my love of acrobatics. For you who follow this blog there has been plenty of updates on the mimbre productions last year, so here I will focus more on the collaborations with other companies in 2012. Two of the shows I worked on are currently on, so I will start with them:

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.

mimbre's youth group, the Step-Up Group, were very proud to be selected to take part in the One Hackney Festival and its colourful street parade on July 21st, celebrating the Olympic Torch arriving to our borough! In the parade the Step-Up group presented extracts of their brand new show: "Origin London" –  an action-packed performance fusing street-dance and acrobatics and celebrating the flavours and diversity that make London our home, all performed by a cast of talented young people from Hackney!

Mimbre's Own Big Dance Events w/c 9th of July
We will be running our own Big Dance event as part of the Big Dance Festival. The idea is for as many people as possible, of all different ages, to join us for a basic but fun choreography which everyone can learn, as well as a chance to try out some acrobatics moves if you are feeling brave.
