A dazzling, immersive winter experience at Shakespeare’s New Place, Stratford-upon-Avon

This winter, Mimbre, an innovative all-female acrobatic theatre group will shine a light on the women of Shakespeare’s plays in a visually enthralling spectacle performed in the contemporary gardens of Shakespeare’s New Place, Stratford-upon-Avon from 11 – 15 December.

Step into the world of Fierce Sisters, as they weave their spell with breathtaking acrobatics, evocative choreography and contemporary soundscapes to explore the essence of Shakespeare’s female characters, bursting out of their stories to claim their own space in today’s world.
