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.
