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

Woke | Camden People’s Theatre | 4-5 May
“The twin juggernauts of hiphop and feminism are on a collision course. And Testament reckons he’s the guy to sort it out. A rapper and world record-holding beatboxer, he thinks he’s a right-on kind of guy.  He’s made theatre shows and had his poetry on Radio 4. Then his daughter is born and suddenly he’s not so sure. That’s why he’s staying up late, lost in the dark worlds of the internet. Because that’s the place people go to talk about these things.
What will he discover as he starts to unpick his own prejudices?” Oooh, I want to see this. All the details are here.

World Without Us | Battersea Arts Centre | 3-12 May
The completely amazing Belgian company Ontroerend Goed are back with this London premiere of a show which meditates on how we live our lives, what we leave behind, and what would happen if humans were gone. “We could hardly imagine it: There would be no more talk about the old days, about what’s possible, no more words.  It would never get this far. We’d find a solution. A world without us.” See this page here for more.

Stunning Meara | St Mary’s Church SW15 | 4-6 May (pictured)
Hurrah, today Wandsworth Fringe begins and there are so many things to see that I found it really hard to even begin to distil it down to a few tips. So, have a look at everything else that’s on here, but definitely consider this, a very interesting sounding piece about a mixed race woman with selective mutism who meets and forges a relationship with Steve, who has Asperger’s. See the festival website here for info.
