I Will Hold You Up: Team Building Through Acrobatics

Through basic acrobatic partnership and movement, we foster a community of trust, balance, strength, flexibility, and play. The foundations of partner acrobatics and weight-sharing encourage team-work, communication, and innovation among your employees.

Adventures in Movement: An Acrobatic Workshop for Kids

A workshop in body architecture and dynamic body movements that come together through collaborative kinesthetic engineering. 

Transcending Technique: Devising Acrobatic Story

UpLift's signature workshop. Explore the act of creating highly-physical stories in ensemble. We draw on the diverse backgrounds we share in UpLift: theatre, writing, partner acrobatics, grappling and gestural movement.

The UpSide Down Clown: Finding the Funny in Acrobatic Movement

Provoke the genius of the clown through the physical body. We will use acrobatics (solo and partner), slapstick and eccentric movement as our primary physical vocabularies. This workshop is appropriate for clowns and comedians looking to develop their physicality as well as movers looking for their funny bone.

Enmity Of The People: Devising a Highly Physical Adaptation of Henrik Ibsen's Play

The creative mind is a muscle that must be regularly exercised. Working creatively in a group is an engagement of that muscle that requires specific training. We will use Henrik Ibsen's play "Enemy Of The People" to devise an original, highly physical adaptation relevant to today's world and your community.
