Lifted – Poole

Saturday18 September 2021

All-female acrobatic theatre company Mimbre perform at Inside Out Dorset.


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 Liftedis 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.

Devised and performed by Silvia Fratelli, Jaide Annalise and Freya Stokka.
