Three To See on 12 Dec: Crash, Bad Cinderella, The Sleeping Trees Nativity – A Sketch Show.

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

Crash | Winterville | until 22 Dec
This sounds great: “Experience heart-stopping acrobatics, liquifying aerial dance and eerie balletic pieces to a lyrical electronic soundtrack. Inspired by 19th century french ballet La Sylphide, ‘Crash’ is a retelling of European folktale through impressionist, mix media pop-conceptual circus.” See this page here for info, and here to book tickets for any of the remaining dates.

Bad Cinderella | The Cockpit | 12-23 Dec
Not a ‘Cinderella’ for your kids, this one: definitely only for over-eighteens. And I imagine that fact will make it entirely alluring to at least some of the readership. “Principles and innocent romance don’t last long when lust enters the picture and unimaginable riches are there for the taking. Good girls finish last for a reason, y’know…” Head this way for more.

The Sleeping Trees Nativity – A Christmas Sketch Show | Battersea Arts Centre | 10-15 Dec (pictured)
And finally, a Christmas sketch show from TW favourites Sleeping Trees, and this is also something you may not want to bring the children along to. Please do make sure you hire a babysitter, though, because this will be great: “Mary, Joseph, Baby Jesus, Shepherds, Wise Men, Angels, Donkeys, Santa Claus, Elves, Snowmen, Reindeer, The Queen and Bono; will all be making an appearance in this brandy butter-soaked selection of brand new sketches”. Hurrah. Details here.
