Today in London: Wednesday 19 June 2013

By | Published on Thursday 13 June 2013


So, as you may have realised already, yesterday was Tuesday, tomorrow is Thursday, and so today is a Wednesday. Applying that same rationale, I think, the TW London Team has assembled a mid-week feast of  cultural delicacies to tease even the most hard-to-please arts palate…


Peaches, Queen Elizabeth Hall, 19 Jun (pictured)
Making a special PA at this year’s Meltdown festival, at the invitation of its MD-for-2013 Yoko Ono, high-priestess-of-XXX-weird Peaches drills into her very greatest hits – not least ‘Fuck The Pain Away’, ‘Stick It To The Pimp’ and ‘Shake Yer Dix’. Details and tickets here.


Fences, Duchess Theatre, 19 Jun
In his first big ‘acting’ gig since that critics-pleasing stint as Othello, Lenny Henry takes to the stage as Troy Maxson, a failed ex-athlete frustrated with his family, in August Wilson’s Pullitzer Prize-winning great American drama. Details and tickets here.

Internal Terrains, Bussey Building, 19-20 Jun
The Ovalhouse reestablishes itself ‘Elsewhere’ – elsewhere being Peckham – in this, a site specific set-piece by artist Natasha Davis, who developed its narrative with the young migrants of the theatre’s We Are London youth group. A mix of film and installation; crows, cages and electric shocks; ‘Internal Terrains’ maps the cracks, dents and frailties of an identity in exile, in search of what’s at stake as one moves from one place to another. Details and tickets here.
