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.
Mimbre create nuanced, breathtaking and highly-skilled acrobatic theatre, USING movement, high physicality and circus innovatively as a physical language to illuminate human connections and promote a positive image of women and creating unexpected moments in unusual spaces, reclaiming some beauty within the urban environment.
Lifted is supported by Without Walls, and commissioned by Stockton International Riverside Festival. Mimbre is supported by Arts Council England.
Basingstoke Festival is a partner in Without Walls, working with festivals and artists and bringing fantastic outdoor arts to people in towns and cities across the UK.
