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

Display | Wellcome Collection | 6 May
Physically integrated dance company Candoco, one of the UK’s leading companies of disabled and non-disabled dancers, presents this intimate evening of dance and sound to explore what it means to display and to be on display. Part of the museum’s Friday Late Spectaculars strand, the exhibition will take place throughout the building, and it’s free to wander round (though entry is not guaranteed if it gets busy). See this page here for more info.

Wastwater | Tabard Theatre | 4 May-4 Jun
Award winning playwright Simon Stephens, of ‘The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night Time’ adaptation renown, is the writer of this rather tense-sounding play about fractured relationships on the brink of change; it sounds as though, despite the serious nature of the subject matter, there’s plenty of poignancy and black humour, and it’s in the hands of a great team, so I would really like to see it. Here’s the link to more details, if you are of the same mind.

Dane Baptiste – Reasonable Doubts | Soho Theatre | 3-7 May (pictured)
Argh, nearly missed this, it’s been running since Tuesday. Dane Baptiste is really excellent, and he has an Edinburgh Comedy Award nomination to prove it. Plus, he’s been on ‘Live At The Apollo’, which I acknowledge isn’t always a guarantee of quality, but in this case, it is. And this particular show, ‘Reasonable Doubts’, has had loads of great reviews. See the venue website here for info and to book.
