Upswing: Fallen

Upswing: Fallen


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.

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.
