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

Kwaidan | Greenwich Theatre | 19-21 Oct (pictured)
A cinematic and atmospheric theatrical piece, inspired by Japanese ghost stories and horror movies, and featuring life-sized puppets, humanettes, shadows and videos. It’s set in Japan in the 1980s and tells the tale of Haru, a young woman who returns to her childhood home after a long absence, only to discover that it’s haunted by the ghosts of the past. Sounds nice and spooky, see this page here for all the details.

Dance Like I’ve Got Diamonds – The Franklys | The Victoria Dalston | 19 Oct
The female-focused promoters return with a night featuring three excellent woman-dominated acts. Garage-rockers The Franklys headline, and are supported by Northern noise rock duo Chambers and London based newcomers Hexmaze. For more information on all the acts and how to book, see this page here.

Fragments | Ovalhouse | 19-21 Oct
“We can’t help putting together what’s been lost or destroyed. Our brain takes tiny pieces of information and turns them into stories that we think make sense.” Telling the story of Cresphontes, a boy brought up to avenge his murdered father and brothers, the show promises to mix ancient myth with modern neuroscience, creating a journey through the fragments of your own life.
