For 29 years the lemmings have pioneered street arts taking productions as for a field as Japan and India and touring indoors for the UK Rural Arts Networks. Over the last decade the Lemmings work has expanded into Educational areas working as producers for Creative Partnerships. They also create a large school's Carnival, have branched into multi-media as well as producing a local community festival. Last year they were co-directors of the Essex Olympic Project "Sparks Will Fly" working alongside Walk the Plank and produced a Anglo French version of their last outdoor show, the 'Illusionarium' for Atelier 231, Sotteville, France in February 2012. This year will find them working in Germany and Bahrain as well as the UK.
It was great to see the Grand theatre of Lemmings really experimenting with this new show for small scale and rural touring and pulling it off with aplomb! Still inventive, still anarchic, still fun after all these years together – what an achievement!
