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

Mathieu Geffré Dance – Act | The Space | 12 Jan
It’s the start of the Resolution dance festival over at The Space, and it appears that this is the event kicking things off. Award winning choreographer Mathieu Geffré performs this solo piece exploring the essence of his choreographic research, sharing his process with his audience, and connecting images from various myths about the origins of the world to his own creative journey. For more information about this show, see this page here, and for a line up of all festival events, see this page here.

Rainbow Umbrella Film Festival | Hen & Chickens Theatre | 12-14 Jan (pictured)
The latest little Film Festival over at Hen & Chickens Theatre is an LGBT one (yes, you might just have got that from the name) and will include networking events as well as screenings. It begins with an opening night double bill of ‘Cas’, a comedy drama from the Netherlands, and ‘Disorientated’, or ‘Orientierungslos’, which focuses on two female students on a camping trip who discover that their perceptions of friendship differ significantly. See this listings page here for links to all the events.

The Mitfords | Greenwich Theatre | 12-14 Jan
“Diana was married to Oswald Mosley and a lifelong fascist. Unity was a great close friend of Hitler’s. Jessica, was a dyed-in-the-wool communist. Deborah became Duchess of Devonshire. Nancy was a well-loved novelist.” I must confess to always having been very curious about this set of interesting sisters and their respective places in twentieth century history. So, yes, I’d rather like to see this one-woman show, written by Gail Louw and performed by Heather Long. Details here.
