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

The Non-Parent Trap | Hen & Chickens | 12-13+19-20 Aug
The overall sentiment behind this show seems to be that in contemporary times, people still don’t accept that it’s okay for a woman to decide that she just doesn’t want children. And I must say, I agree that’s the case: people level weird accusations at those who do – say that they are cold, or even selfish – or tell them that they will definitely change their minds. It will be interesting to see what Nina Davis comes up with in exploring this sort of attitude, click here for more.

Wayne McGregor’s +/- Human | Roundhouse | 10-28 Aug
Some brilliantly innovative shizzle for you over at Roundhouse this month, a collaboration between award-winning choreographer and director, Wayne McGregor and contemporary art collective Random International, put together with new music from iconic electronic music label, Warp Records. The result is a fusion of immersive installation and live dance, which sounds pretty funky. Head this way for details.

The Odyssey | The Scoop | 9 Aug-3 Sep
Hurrah for open air theatre, especially if the weather is nice. If it’s not, wrap up and dig out your waterproofs, and head for the free theatre at The Scoop. The show, which, you’ll have deduced, is a staging of the epic Greek tale, is divided into three sections – one at 6pm, one at 7.30pm and one at 9pm, so you can take in all three in one night or spread it out over more.
