We’re looking forward to the London International Mime Festival (LIMF) this January and its must-see programme of physical and visual theatre from the UK and around the world. These shows are on our Artistic Director Rachel Clare’s hotlist – don’t try and see her in January, she’ll be out!
Bromance by Barely Methodical Troupe
The debut show by Britain’s hottest young acrobats and winners of the inaugural Circus Maximus competition and a 2014 Total Theatre Award.
Kraken by Trygve Wakenshaw
A masterpiece of absurd sensibility that follows its own zany logic. Kraken is the delirious follow up to Trygve’s Edinburgh and London 2013 smash-hit Squidboy.
Black Regent by Knights of the Invisible
With relentless strength of imagination and vision, Iona Kewney takes her body on an awesome and incredible journey. Composer, vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Joseph Quimby is the majestic voice and sound of this other world.
4×4 by Gandini Juggling
Linbury Studio Theatre
4×4 revisits the Gandini’s love affair with pure patterns and mathematics. 4 jugglers and 4 ballet dancers share the stage for the first time in a unique and beautiful dialogue. Set to an original composition performed live by the exceptional chamber ensemble, Camerata Alma Viva.
Plexus by Compagnie 111/Aurélian Bory/Kaori Ito
Entrapped by five thousand cords, a forest of brilliantly lit strings, a warrior-woman conquers her environment so that she floats like a black angel in a sumptuous cage that she can only leave by vanishing completely. Conceived by Aurélian Bory for the extraordinary Japanese dancer Kaori Ito.
32 Rue Vandenbranden by Peeping Tom
Cinematic set design, an evocative soundtrack and jaw-dropping physicality combine to create an unforgettable piece of dance theatre that plunges spectators into a foreboding universe of cold, wind and ice.
