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

Border Tales | The Place | 14-18 Nov
We love Luca Silvestrini’s Protein dance shows, and the fact that we interviewed him twice in the last two years or so is a testament to that. And in fact, if you’d like to find out more about this show in particular, it’s what we covered in the Q&A we did in 2015, so have a look here for an insight into what it’s all about. I suspect that it’s got even more relevance in the light of recent events than back then. See this page here for more.

Superposition | Camden People’s Theatre | 14-15 Nov (pictured)
“What are the real laws of attraction? How do we satisfy our longing to connect? What is my place in the universe? What makes me, me?” ‘Superposition’ promises to take you down a rabbit hole of physics, from the quantum world of the tiny to the expanses of the universe – via a lap dancing club – in an attempt to answer these questions. An intriguing sounding one woman show fusing spoken word, live art and movement. See the venue website here for details.

Thunder Whales | New Diorama | 14 Nov
This sounds… unusual… but you know, I like that, and this is the work of Red Cape Black Cape, who impressed the Fringe a couple of years ago with ‘A Fistful Of Hunny’. It’s a comedy about a pair of killer whales, Mysty and Cruz – the main attractions at the biggest marine park in the world, performing synchronised tricks to 80s hits – who are poised to make a bid for freedom. I think I deserve a medal for not replacing ‘poised’ with ‘porpoised’ in that last sentence. Info here.
