Sorry, was just miming out that this weekend sees the start of the London International Mime Festival. Did you get it?
Hmm, I’d better tell you about it then.
It starts on Saturday, January 15th – and there are all sorts of things to be getting involved with.
Not only are there lots of performances to go and see (click here for the listings and how to get tickets), but there are also workshops to have fun with.
Topics include ‘Creating Theatre and Performance’, ‘Introduction to Commedia for Performance’ – based on the old Italian mime shows, and ‘Clown Through Mask’. Information on all of these – and others – can be found here.
The performances include mime, mask work, acrobatics, circus skills, animation and puppetry. Venues include Southbank Centre, Barbican, ICA, Roundhouse and Royal Opera House.
Ticket prices vary. The festival runs until January 30th.
Hello, and a Happy New Year to you all!
I hope you all had a good holiday period and 2011 has started out well.
You may have noticed that I haven’t posted for a while. Sorry about that. I’ve been pretty busy lately, and have just spent 3 weeks abroad. As it happens, I’ve realised that I need some help to keep the blog going – I would hate for it to have to stop altogether.
So, I’m looking for contributors to the site who can help keep things ticking along. Ideally this would suit lovers of London, explorers and adventurers, possibly students and preferably journalism students at that. Although, of course, one can’t be too fussy – so if you think you’d like to get involved, please drop me an email on firstname.lastname@example.org
I am happy for you to contribute as much or as little as you’d like, but I must tell you now that I am unable to pay you for your efforts. Never fear though, each piece you write will be credited accordingly.
If that hasn’t put you off, please do get in touch.
