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

Altered Landscapes – Juan DelGado | Watermans | 1 Apr -29 May
This upcoming exhibition from Juan DelGado is highly topical, given the subject it tackles, dealing with themes of displacement and the experiences of travelling through unfamiliar landscapes. The artist visited Greece, Macedonia and Calais, to document the places that refugees have passed through. For more information, see this page here.

Speaking In Tongues | The Cockpit | 1-2 Apr
This sounds rather intriguing – expect a very immediate and close-up performance, aided by some interesting staging choices. The play examines nine parallel and interlocking lives, via a fragmented progression of confessionals and interrogations revealing a dark side to human nature. See the venue website here for more info and to book.

Funmbi Omotayo – Legal Immigrant | Soho Theatre 1-2 Apr
Stand-up comedian Funmbi Omotayo impressed critics and audiences at the Edinburgh Festival last summer with his laid-back delivery and charming personality, as well as his set focusing on childhood tales of growing up in two different places – Lagos and London – and becoming a fish out of water in both.
