In association with Albany Theatre, Jackson’s Lane, London International Mime Festival and Norden Farm, Maidenhead.
Led by Artistic Director Vicki Amedume, Upswing have swung and spun their way through a stunning array of multi-disciplinary performances: from old skool hip hop, through African mythology and Kenyan acrobatics, to an Olympic descent of Nelson's column that sent a silk banner cascading down this familiar monument. The aerial and circus world of Upswing is poignant, unpredictable, and eloquent.
Weaving dance, aerial, circus and animation with African spirituality and a modern narrative, Fallen creates a dynamic and poetic portrait of love, loss and the resilience of the human spirit. It asks what it means to be a woman and a mother caught in a place of transition as one culture meets another.
