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

Laura Davis – Cake In The Rain | Soho Theatre | 14-16 Sep
Another week, another highly anticipated UK debut by an Australian comedian at the Soho Theatre. Well, I am not sure it happens weekly, but it certainly happens quite a lot. Anyway, this is actually your last night to see this show, from which you can expect something kinda dark and unconventional, and of course, much critically acclaimed. See the venue website here to book.

The Fems | Camden People’s Theatre | 16 Sep (pictured)
“This flock of glittering outcasts, fresh from the sequinned swamp, present a kamikaze cabaret and monstrous melodrama. The Fems – terrifying embodiments of femininity – take us on a glittering tour to show that “sometimes it’s hard to be a Fem” – but the alternative is even grimmer.” In another offering from Come As You Are, this chorus of “evil clowns” offer a riotous and silly choral piece focusing on masc vs. fem culture and the systems that perpetuate these divisions.

Slave/Master | Victoria & Albert Museum | 16-24 Sep
Part of the London Design Festival events at the V&A, ‘Slave/Master’ is an installation examining the borders of human/robot interaction, and is a collaborative piece combining contemporary dance, cutting-edge robotics and interactive projection graphics, as the audience roam freely, viewing from all angles.
