Upswing Present

THIS EVENT TOOK PLACE IN 2010 Suitable for ages 14+ Running Time: 55 mins approx Alone in a foreign land, caught in a place of transition, a woman turns from reality to escape to a place where dreams reunite her with all she has lost in her flight. Weaving dance, aerial, circus, shadows and animation with African spirituality and a modern narrative, Fallen creates a dynamic and poetic portrait of eternal love, overwhelming loss and the resilience of the human spirit, whilst questioning what it means to be a woman and a mother when caught in the process of change as one culture meets another. Created by aerial director Vicki Amedume, animator Nic Rawlings from Paper Cinema, and mentor Mark Murphy (VTol). Upswing has established itself at the forefront of aerial interdisciplinary circus in the UK. “…with terrific input from aerial experts, this is one hell of a ride.” **** Guardian (on The Wicked Lady) Produced in association with Albany Theatre, Jacksons Lane, London Intermational Mime Festival and Norden Farm Centre for the Arts.
