All-female acrobatic company Mimbre is back on tour this year with an 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.

The constant presence of physical contact and trust in Lifted is even more powerful post-pandemic. Our human need for touch, as well as our complex relationship to the safety of and consent to physical contact, are both addressed in playful and serious ways.

Created in collaboration with three guest choreographers - Yi-Chun Liu from Peeping Tom, 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.

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 Weekend the BBC Arts commission film The Sofa Dance, Lifted takes Mimbre back to its roots, creating world-famous, nuanced and breath-taking outdoor theatre.

Suitable for all ages.
