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

The Exploded Circus | Grosvenor Square | 1-5 Aug (pictured)
Boundary pushing all-female contemporary circus company Mimbre who push boundaries have joined forces with critically-acclaimed designer Loren Elstein and experimental composer Quinta on this fab sounding production. It’s an exciting mixture of acrobatics, aerial trickery and juggling,  in which six women tell a story without words, seeking order in chaos to create a new normal.

Luke Heggie – Triprat | Soho Theatre | 30 Jul-4 Aug
Okay, I think we need some comedy today. I mean, I know we often have comedy shows in these tips, but you know, I think we especially need comedy today, and perhaps from a winner of the Comics’ Choice Award at Melbourne International Comedy Festival…? I mean, that makes him sound like a good bet, right…? I’ve not actually seen this chap perform, but I have heard very good things about him. But be warned: expect adult themes, foul language, brutal honesty and “harsh but fair” jokes. See the venue website here for more.

Ardent8 – Sacrifice | Soho Theatre | 31 Jul-4 Aug
Oh, and another one at Soho Theatre. That happened quite by accident I assure you. Anyway, it’s not a bad thing, and you know, both these shows are very much worth a recommendation. This one is from Ardent8, which was created by Ardent Theatre Company to provide artistic support to eight recent graduates who have found it difficult to make the leap from region to London. “Six grand a month for one room in the basement of a disused pub on the corner of a dirty high street with no natural light and damp black walls that make it feel more like a coffin than a home?” Click here.
