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

Everything I Am | Camden People’s Theatre | 2-5 Oct
“Tash is a queer Black woman. She’s also silenced, a lot. If it’s not by her well-meaning yet homophobic Jamaican aunties, then it’s by her equally well-meaning yet racist queer friends. And let’s not get started on the white feminists… Things will change soon, though. She’s taking cues from the master of speaking their mind – Kanye West. What could go wrong?” I’ve tipped this before but I am tipping it again because it was only on for one performance then, and now you have more chances to see it. That said, this is a preview run, with a full run coming up sometime. Anyway, see it, go here.

Not Today’s Yesterday | The Place | 2-3 Oct (pictured)
This is an international collaboration from award-winning UK-based Bharatanatyam artist Seeta Patel and Australian choreographer Lina Limosani, and is inspired by the whitewashing of history. A one-woman show blending techniques from Bharatanatyam, contemporary dance and theatre, it offers a poetic narrative that has “the beauty and disquiet of a Grimm fairy tale”. For more details and to book your tickets, head right this way.

Egg | The Albany | 2-3 Oct
“What does it take to make a baby? An accident / right timing / a drunken night / right people / right parts? But what if you don’t have all the right parts? Or you do, and one of them is broken. As it turns out, some things are un-mendable.” This aerial theatre production from circus theatre company Paper Doll Militia had a successful run up at the old edfringe this summer just gone, and won many fans. It’s an exploration of female fertility, sexuality and choice and has been put together using original music and personal testimony. Info right about here.
