The all-female acrobatic theatre company Mimbre bring Lifted to Refract.
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.
Teaming up 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.
