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

[F.E.A.R] | Camden People’s Theatre | 19-20 Oct
A one man show about constructed fear, asking the question of whether the world wants us to feel safe. It tells a life story, from early childhood memories and public information films, to the fears of a middle-aged man “plagued with the news of Islamic State attacks, the revelations of Edward Snowden, the rise of UKIP and of a growing concern of physical decay.” Expect some powerful stuff, but also some dark humour, in this exploration of the fear we live in, and the political ramifications of it. Details here.

My Love Lies Frozen In The Ice | Greenwich Theatre | 19 Oct
I like the look of this show from physical theatre company Dead Rabbits Theatre. “In 1897 three explorers took off to conquer the North Pole in a free-flying balloon. The trip was supposed to last 3 months. It took a little longer… Behind them, at home, they left a woman who would not forget them… Follow us on that journey through the whiter than white snow and darker than dark nights where nothing is what it seems…” Click here for more.

Startin’ Point Festival | The Place | 19-21 Oct (pictured)
“Sounds and rhythms from Africa have been moving us for generations. Blues, Reggae, Jazz, Funk, Disco, Hip-Hop, House. Our bodies have responded very differently to these various genres of music, creating extremely rich and diverse movement vocabulary.” A new festival celebrating the connection between music and dance from the African Diaspora, acknowledging the contribution of national and international artists, and encouraging young people to find their voices and push boundaries.
