Did you know London has an annual international mime festival?
The London International Mime Festival has been running for forty years and is certainly worth talking about, um, well, not talking about since mimes don’t talk but – oh, you know what I mean. Expect clowning, impressive circus displays, artistic dance shows, movement pieces, mask shows and far, far more at this year’s London International Mime Festival.
From January 9th – February 4th 2017 all of London is a stage for mime artists, clowns, actors and dancers from around the world.
If you are going to buy anything this January it’s got to be some tickets to Hedda Gabler at the National Theatre.
The National Theatre is located in Southwark on London’s Southbank and is one of the most acclaimed theatre venues in the UK. You’ll recognise the building from a mile away – its Brutalist design makes the theatre jut into the sky like a granite monument.
Hedda Gabler is a dark Ibsen classic that explores the events of the tragic heroine Hedda Gabler (played by the incredible Ruth Wilson) after rushing into a questionable marriage. A powerhouse of naturalism that stays with you after you leave the theatre.
You may have already heard of Dans le Noir?
Dans le Noir is a restaurant in Clerkenwell that has its diners eat their food in total darkness. This eating experience will change your perspective of the world by taking away sight and making you rely on all your other senses. You will find that you savour food differently, using taste and smell to re-evaluate the designer cuisine at Dans le Noir. It is also an interesting social experiment as you interact in the dark without the help of body language and other visual cues to communicate. Prepare yourself for a sensory journey like no other at Dans le Noir this January.
