Rosie Wilby

The London International Mime Festival kicks off this very day and runs until 27 Jan, so even if there’s no room in your diary today for something a little bit visual, do check out the fest’s website to see what other treats are on offer this month. Meanwhile, some other cultural treats too…


Rosie Wilby – Absolute Love, Canal Cafe Theatre, 10 Jan (pictured)
Former pop diarist Rosie Wilby, now in the guise of medieval crusader-ess, sheathes her (plastic) sword to scale the antiquated twin terrains of love and romance. Science, swooning and a sub-zero love-o-meter also star. Event details and tickets here.


London International Mime Festival, various venues, 10-27 Jan
Festival organisers collate a diverse 2013 programme featuring mime’s most refined international artists. Starting it all off tonight are aerial theatre troupe Ockham’s Razor, who’ll perform a provocative and intensely physical new show, ‘Not Until We Are Lost’, at the Kings Cross-based Platform Theatre. Festival details and tickets here.

The Silence Of The Sea, Studio 2 at Trafalgar Studios, 10 Jan – 2 Feb
A new chapter in the Trafalgar’s Donmar Warehouse collaboration begins, as the latter theatre’s Associate Artist, playwright Anthony Weigh, re-interprets a 1942 text by novellist Jean Bruller, an “excruciating dilemma” about a soldier billeted with an elderly man and his niece.
