And today’s ThisWeek-tipped, LDN-based events are…
COMEDY: Weirdos All-Star Comedy Fundraiser | Camden Head | 6 Nov
A drive for donations towards fairly odd comic lot Weirdos’ Christmas charity pantomime; this tight-fitting fundraiser in the um… ‘intimate’ back room of the Camden Head features Weirdos’ greatest hitters John Kearns, Lou Sanders, Ben Target, Adam Larter, Joz Norris, Matthew Highton and… more. Details and tickets here.
THEATRE/DANCE: Dancer | Battersea Arts Centre | 6-8 Nov (pictured)
Created by late theatre trailblazer Adrian Howells, this highly-praised softly pokes and prods at the idea of what it is to be a ‘Dancer’ (dahling) via Ian and Gary, two ordinary blokes happy to dance any time day or night; in jerky, camp and ethereal style, moving both visibly and invisibly. Details and tickets here.
THEATRE: 2071 | Royal Court Theatre | 6-15 Nov
A cross-collaboration by ace, experimental playwright/director pairing Duncan Macmillan and Katie Mitchell, and world-leading scientist Chris Rapley too; ‘2071’ looks at the bearing climate change, and the ongoing population boom, is having on the planet. “Climate change is a matter of importance to everyone, but what to do about it is mired in controversy. What’s needed is a conversation. What do we owe future generations? How can we protect our children and grandchildren?”, asks the playbill. Details and tickets here.
