Tmesis Theatre and Physical Fest are raising funds to bring over three amazing young acrobats we have worked with in Zambia to the UK for three weeks to take part in Physical Fest and other artistic projects in Liverpool. It would be an amazing experience for them, and brilliant for the young people here to experience working with such talent and energy.
We are a group of dedicated young acrobats based in Zambia's vibrant capital city: Lusaka.
We work with young people (aged 5-25) from a very poor background, living in Lusaka's notorious compounds, and teach them to channel their energy into something positive. Sadly, many in their situation turn to crime, and/or get involved with drink and drugs as a way to get by in life. We offer the chance to get involved with something positive and creative. We teach unique skills and create opportunities for talented youngsters to develop and to showcase their abilities. There are not many opportunities of this type in Zambia. www.barefeettheatre.org
