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

The Living River | Battersea Arts Centre | 29 Jul (pictured)
This is a new site-specific show created by BAC Homegrown Company and devised by a cast of local young people aged 12-25 alongside professional directors and musicians. The show, performed as a promenade at the River Wandle, will explore the stories of the river through a mixture of spoken word, music, storytelling and dance. For information and to book, see this page here.

The Concrete Jungle Book | ArtsDepot | 29 Jul
Another show making a London stop ahead of an Edinburgh run, HighRise Theatre’s ‘The Concrete Jungle Book’ is a new hip hop musical which transfers Rudyard Kipling’s classic tale to an entirely new location – inner-city Britain – and incorporates live rap music, grime, and spoken word. Sounds like a really interesting idea, see the venue website here for more info.

The Noise Next Door’s Really Really Good Afternoon Show | Leicester Square Theatre | 29 Jul
I am sure you all know exactly how good The Noise Next Door are. Yes, they are really, really good. So I am not sure I need to say anything else, do I? Like the blurb says, you can expect “an epic explosion of outlandish characters, perfect punchlines and awesome songs all mixed together with the guys’ trademark brand of off-the-cuff antics.” Head this way for details.
