“This year’s London International Mime Festival—always a real artistic shot in the arm at the start of the year—begins with Barely Methodical tried and tested show, Shift. It’s a tight, at times thrilling hour in which three men and one woman (the remarkable Esmeralda Nikolajeff) constantly tie themselves up in knots as they test each other and their own bodies using resistance bands and a single Cyr wheel.”
Four outrageously talented performers push against the edges of reality, stretching, challenging and testing the limits of collective physical endeavour. Watch them tumble, fly and spin in a new show that rolls out power based acrobatics, B-boying and Cyr wheel, all seasoned with the company’s trademark thoughtfulness and humour.
BMT scored a huge hit with its debut show Bromance (LIMF 2015) enjoying a three-week run in New York and worldwide success. Follow up show Kin is touring internationally in 2019, and Shift, commissioned by the 2018 Norwich and Norfolk Festival, looks set to repeat the winning formula.
