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

We Can Time Travel | Shoreditch Town Hall | 24 Apr-5 May
“Since he was a boy, Dom has been receiving messages from the Traveller, a mysterious voice, at the edge of time. Join him for an experiment in Harmonic Time Theory to prove, once and for all, that time travel is real.” Yes, regular readers may be able to guess that I basically got sucked in by the title because of my weakness for time travel, but, as always in these circumstances, I only stuck around after getting sucked in because this sounds completely super, and you know, it’s by the award winning Dom Coyote. Read about it here.

Tribe | Jacksons Lane | 27-28 Apr
This is part of the Jacksons Lane festival of visual theatre and new writing known as Jacksons Five (see what they did there?), and it looks ever so good, promising lightning fast sequences combined with vivid use of sound and light. “Ru is desperately climbing the corporate ladder, blissfully unaware of where it will lead him.But when the spirits of his ancestors abduct him in a nightclub bathroom, Ru starts to see the world in a whole new way.” Book your tickets here to find out what happens next.

Tumble Tuck | King’s Head Theatre | 24 Apr-12 May (pictured)
Another event from King’s Head Theatre’s female focused Who Runs The World season, and a play that we first heard about when it had a successful and acclaimed run up the Edinburgh Festival last summer. It’s about a young woman who loves to spend time in the pool, but doesn’t want to be judged on how well she performs in it, and examines the self worth of women today and the emphasis we place on winning.
