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

Conseqüències | Stratford Circus Arts Centre | 29 Sep (pictured)
We’re all about the dance today, not least because there are three different dance performances going on at Stratford Circus Arts Centre today. And as you might imagine, I rather struggled to choose which one to recommend and in the end did it in a kind of picking-out-of-a-hat manner. Anyway, there’s this one, a humorous dance performance looking at the boundaries between reality and fiction, but there’s also ‘KoKERS’ (for little ones) and ‘D-Construction’, a hip hoppy piece. Head to this page here for ‘Conseqüències’, but scroll down to the black box at the bottom for more on the other two.

Confessions Of A Cockney Circus Dancer | The Place | 29 Sep
More dance, but also funnies: award winner Shane Shambhu combines Indian dance and laugh-out-loud comedy to take audiences on a revealing journey, following the stages of his career through from unlikely dance student, to ‘rude boy’, to international performer. Expect a humorous, honest and charming show, and a wide range of characters and stories, all exploring how race, language, identity and cultures have defined him and his career. Info here.

Camden Underground – Witch Witch Witch | Camden People’s Theatre | 28-29 Sep
“A riot grrrl ritual. Two witches show a wronged woman how terrible her boyfriend has been – they want her to be happy and they want her to join their coven. They use magik to show her what he’s done, and the magik is the audience.” Join award winning collective Live Beasts who “do stories and rituals for lively audiences – it makes us try harder, and nobody gets left out”. Part of Camden Underground (you may know that already, as you can read), see the venue website here for details.
