Shobana Jeyasingh Dance

TODAY IN LONDON Daniel Simonsen, Kathryn Prescott, Shobana Jeyasingh Dance and even Elizabeth I feature in the following TW-recommended events…

ART: Elizabeth I & Her People, National Portrait Gallery, 10 Oct – 5 Jan 2014
Exploring Liz I’s long-enduring reign through the lives of her subjects, the NPG’s big new expo highlights high-end portraiture of the queen herself and her courtiers, but also gives face time to lesser-known Elizabethans, showing paintings and possessions belonging to butchers, bakers and candlestick makers. Details and tickets here.

COMEDY: Angel Comedy – Angel Delight feat Jay Foreman/Daniel Simonsen/Brenda Gilhooly, The Camden Head (Islington), 10 Oct
Angel Comedy whips up a delightful night of free levity, with sterling singer-songwriter Jay Foreman, super-dry Swede Daniel Simonsen, and ‘TV Burp’ writer turned stand-up Brenda Gilhooly all adding wobble to the comic blancmange. Details here.

DANCE: Shobana Jeyasingh Dance – Too Mortal, St Pancras Old Church, 10-12 Oct (pictured)
Upheld by this year’s Dance Umbrella festival, Shobana Jeyasingh Dance’s mesmeric and site-specific piece fits into every pews and crevice of St Pancras Old Church, as six women dressed in red reflect on life and death. It’s free, but an RSVP is required. Details here.

THEATRE: The Love Girl & The Innocent, Southwark Playhouse, 10 Oct – 2 Nov
Ex-‘Skins’ twin Kathryn Prescott is ‘The Love Girl’, a POW in a corrupt Soviet Russian camp, in Nobel Prize-winner Alexander Solzhenitsyn’s gripping morality tale. Details and tickets here.
