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

Form | Wilton’s Music Hall | 16 Oct
Form is devised and performed by Rendered Retina, winners of the Les Enfants Terribles Award 2017, so I bet that’s already attractive to all you Les Enfants Terribles fans out there reading this. The production uses mime, clowning and office equipment (!) to tell a non-verbal story of escape from the oppression of daily routine into the beautiful landscapes of the imagination. See this page here for information.

Man-Cub | King’s Head Theatre | 16-20 Oct
This is a devised piece, based on the themes of The Jungle Book (but definitely not for children), which blurs the lines of movement, theatre, and personal politics. Expect: “Transformation. A mating ground. The sense of freedom and possibility. The desperation to control a need and suppress a fear. The shared experiences of alienation and rejection. A place of sex, substances, and secrecy. A place where the law of the jungle rules over all.” See this page here for more.

Anyone’s Guess How We Got Here | Camden People’s Theatre | 10-28 Oct
“Don’t respond, hold my breath, move the sofa away from the wall, and lay down in the gap made between, and hide. And wait. And when they go, poke my fingers out the letterbox. Stretch them wide. Feel the cold of the air. And think, if I left them there long enough, the wolves might come, and eat me piece by piece.” Award-winning company Barrell Organ return with this piece about debt and eviction, and what we leave behind us.
