Audience in awe of Dance alum’s acrobatics and musicalityFri 20 September 2019
Wise Children is a new theatre company conceived, created and led by Emma Rice, former Artistic Director of Shakespeare’s Globe.
Described by The Guardian as celebrating “the sheer razzle-dazzle of a life in theatre”, their most recent production, Malory Towers, is based on the post-war school novels of acclaimed author Enid Blyton and stars dance alum Mirabelle Gremaud as Irene Dupont.
Speaking to Big Issue North about the role, Mirabelle says –
“I get to sing and dance, including acrobatics that are part of my character’s movement language. I also get to play the harp as my character is the musician – the girl who loves music and being upside down. I basically play myself.”
Big Issue North’s preview praised Mirabelle, who “left audience members in awe of her acrobatics before reducing them to tears with her musical performance.”
You can catch the final performances at the Oxford Playhouse on the 1 Oct – 5 Oct 2019.
