Comedy Dance & Physical

Torobaka

And today’s ThisWeek-tipped, LDN-based events are…

COMEDY: Bridget Christie – An Ungrateful Woman | Battersea Arts Centre | 3 Nov – 15 Dec
All-star comedian (and winner of last year’s Edinburgh Comedy Award) Bridget Christie chases her beautifully biting ‘A Bic For Her’ – a show owing everything to the daily grind of pedestrian sexism – with ‘An Ungrateful Woman’, in which she highlights the awful practice of female genital mutilation; plus more trivial sidelines like salads and… Michael Gove. Details and tickets here.

COMEDY: Knightmare Live – Level 2 | Lyric Theatre | 3 Nov
Following a massively over-attended stint at the Edinburgh Fringe, this roaming stage adaptation of long-dead kids’ TV show ‘Knightmare’ is back in the capital, featuring a cast captained by Tom Bell as Lord Fear, not to mention lo-fi challenges, slapstick action, and a pair of scared-looking comedians as contestants. Details and tickets here.

DANCE: Akram Khan + Israel Galván – Torobaka | Sadler’s Wells | 3-8 Nov (pictured)
Dance artist and kathak choreographer Akram Khan and a great of contemporary flamenco – the award-winning Israel Galván – collaborate to form ‘Torobaka’, a work that finds the pair defying classification to create a distinct combination of both’s go-to styles. Details and tickets here.
