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

No Direction Home – Adventures In Black and White | Camden People’s Theatre | 24-26 Oct (pictured)
“Stasys and Lilly face each other, unwilling to talk about their exile. But from within the spaces between their words and the seams that hold their patchwork clothes together, images come to life.” A study of the parallel lives of two exiled people, one in Siberia, the other in Sussex. Promises to be a “thoughtful and mischievous” piece featuring story-telling, sound and imagescapes, translations, blurry photographs and, um, cake. More info right about here.

Silk Road | The Place | 26-27 Oct
This sounds like a fascinatingly fusion-y sort of dance piece, in which Flamenco meets Kathak. Expect “a fascinating exploration of the rituals along nomadic routes, conjuring images of the pilgrims, monks, traders and urban dwellers who made their way from China to the Iberian Peninsula.” See the venue website here for details.

Boundaries | Omnibus Theatre | 23-28 Oct
“Diane is a happy, fulfilled woman in her middle years. On a trip to visit her mum, memories of her youth come flooding by. Before she was Diane, she was Daniel.” An exploration of harassment and hate crime, developed from real witness testimony by women and LGBT people. Click this link here for more.
