Stumble work with circus artists to create truthfully absurd theatre, for indoor and outdoor performance.
The Yorkshire-based company was created in 2007 by Mish Weaver. With a background in sculpture, choreography, and most of all, circus; Stumble creates an environment in which artists can feel safe and nurtured, and as a result that the audience feel engaged and included.
Stumble seeks to rejuvenate circus’ history of innovation with apparatus by mixing it with sculptural design and engineering. It employs live music and voice with physical comedy and skilled acrobatics with the subtleties of dance choreography.
Stumble are currently working on Cart Before Horse, which will tour in the Yorkshire Festival this June/July, and Second Breath- an outdoor performance in Leeds on 9th & 10th May.
Their first show, An Evening of Instability toured in 2010.
Stumble’s founder, Mish Weaver is amongst the UK’s most eminent directors of contemporary circus. In addition to making her own work, Mish has worked with the National Centre for Circus Arts, No Fit State, Gravity & Levity and Circomedia, to name but a few. A former aerialist with a fine art degree and MA in performance, she is in the remarkable position of understanding the many different facets of making shows with circus.
