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

Sexy | Camden People’s Theatre | 31 Jan-3 Feb (pictured)
Here we have another show from CPT’s Calm Down Dear festival of innovative feminist performance, and it looks great. This one is from the very talented Vanessa Kisuule, who uses comedy, spoken word, dance and various states of undress to explore our conflicted relationship with our own bodies, and our obsession with what’s sexy. What does it even mean? Click here for more.

Project 2: Improvised Science Fiction | Vault Festival | 31 Jan
And another festival event for you, and this one I absolutely picked for me, because today is my birthday, and a) my birthday celebrations are nearly always improvised, and b) I love improvised stuff so it’s quite apt that I go and see some on my birthday. Expect nods to loads of my favourite stuff like ‘Back To The Future’ and ‘Futurama’, amongst other things, in what sounds like a rather promising show. Head this way for info.

Booby’s Bay | Finborough Theatre | 30 Jan-24 Feb
“Above a secluded cove in Cornwall, Huck, a former fisherman, is holed up in an empty second home. The holiday season is fast approaching, the sharks are coming, but he refuses to budge. As Booby’s Bay fills up for the annual surfing competition, Huck wants to shake things up, even if no one is listening. He’s got media connections and intends to make a political stand.” This is described as a “passionate, comic fable about the housing crisis in Cornwall and beyond”, and it sounds rather good.
