My Name Is Swan | East End Film Festival | 25 Jun
My Name Is Swan describes, through film, music and poetry, a 24 hour journey across London and addresses the growing social and economic gaps of the capital city through the exploration of diverse themes: drugs and the suburbs, boredom, football violence, vandalism, happiness, isolation, addiction, rivers, shopping trolleys, love, and hope.

Waiting For Charlie | The Hope Theatre | 25-26 Jun
“It’s been a rough six months for Bobby, but his mate’s turning him vegan and he’s just started a new job.” This show claims to be about friendship and vegan cheese, which got my attention, not least because I eat vegan cheese on a regular basis. But there are better reasons that that to want to see it: It’s by an award nominated playwright, Andrew Maddock, who you may remember as the creator of ‘The Me Plays’ and ‘In/Out (A Feeling)’, and so I suspect it will be rather good. See the venue website here for details.

12 Million Volts | New Diorama | 25-26 Jun (pictured)
The up and coming, award winning The Outbound Project tell the story of Nikola Tesla, who, in their opinion, was “one of the world’s most badass inventors”, and promise a show containing sort-of holograms, er, pigeons with lasers coming out of their eyes, and “more lighting tricks than we can afford batteries to perform”. Well, I’m sold, and I expect you are too, see this page here for more.
