Mimbo Jimbo Makes Art

Today, Mimbo Jimbo wants to make art. So he rolls out a canvas on the floor. He opens a bucket of yellow paint and pours it out. There! Now everything is yellow.

Then he takes a tube of blue paint and splashes it into the middle of the yellow.

And stomps on it. But it is not enough…..

Mimbo Jimbo Makes Art is performance theatre for children, based on the popular children´s book by the renowned Danish artist Jakob Martin Strid.

All imaginable strategies are applied when a big painting is created live during each performance. It is a terrible mess. A very entertaining mess.
