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

CABARET: Apocalypse Meow – Crisis Is Born | Southbank, Centre, Purcell Room | 16-29 Dec
World-acclaimed ‘kamikaze cabaret’ star Melissa Madden Gray, alias Meow Meow, sings up a (snow) storm of cat-astrophically Christmassy cheer; with able assistance from a live band. Details and tickets here.

DANCE: Rambert Dance Company – New Choreography | The Place | 16-17 Dec
Take a break from all the tacky Xmas schmaltz with this programme of fairly sophisticated-looking works choreographed and danced by the cast of the Ballet Rambert. It includes Shobana Jeyasingh’s mathematical-rhythms-meets-classical-Indian piece ‘Terra Incognita’; the “world’s first brass band work” ‘Dark Arteries’; Ashley Page’s ‘Subterrain – which is scored by Aphex Twin and ‘Anna Nichole Smith’ opera composer Mark-Anthony Turnage – and Mark Baldwin’s cosmic new short in three movements, ‘The Strange Charm Of Mother Nature’. Details and tickets here.

MUSIC: Wiley | The Garage | 16 Dec
The one and only Wiley, original grime MC extraordinaire, rolls the dice on his tenth LP ‘Snakes & Ladders’, a game of slick, icy beats and his trademark arctic flow. Details and tickets here.

Update 16 Dec: Wiley’s show at The Garage tonight has been postponed. A statement from the venue reads: “Following an incident which took place outside The Garage in London last night, the main venue is unable to open this evening. It is with regret that the venue has no option other than to postpone tonight’s Wiley show, which is a decision in no way related to Wiley, his management team nor his support acts. The ‘Snakes & Ladders Tour’ shall be moved to early 2015, new dates to be announced soon”.

It adds: “Tickets for this show will be valid for the new dates of the tour, or customers can contact point of purchase for ticket refunds”.
