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

I Infinite | The Place | 16-17 Oct (pictured)
“Graphic patterns slice through space, glowing cubes fracture into miniscule squares and pools of light hover in the air like oil on water.” This piece from the Tom Dale Company is interesting: it’s described as part dance, part installation, and invites its audiences to roam the performance space as they please, and to watch the dancer from whichever perspective they choose. For all the details head right this way.

The Incident | Canada Water Theatre | 16-19 Oct
An exploration of what it’s like to live in a different culture from the one you were born in, far from family, support, and tradition, looking at who we allow into our societies and what it means to be an ambitious, non-white woman in a white male dominated society. “Why do I have to represent a whole race when I just want to represent me?”. See the venue website here for more.

Castaways | The Albany | 16 Oct
“Three teenagers – born on the same day, in the same town but with very different backgrounds. Inseparable since they were knee-high to a grasshopper, they’re a close-knit trio, both at school and at home. Sam, Asha and Kieran watch out for each other, until one day a shocking event blows their teenage world apart and their friendship with it.” Sounds like a great show for middle/older teens, see this page here for info.
