The London International Mime Festival enters its 40th anniversary season with a host of premieres and artists new to the festival, the festival is bringing back some of visual theatre’s most admired names in this special year including acrobat-genius Mathurin Bolze (Cie MPTA), Charleroi Danses’ Kiss & Cry and Mossoux Bonté, German Mask-theatre experts Familie Flöz, and Gandini Juggling with a hugely expanded version of its glorious Pina Bausch tribute, Smashed.
Elsewhere there’s surrealist Greek glam live art, manga-inspired drama from Italy, and extraordinary object theatre exploring neuroscience, exile, arson and the Shakespeare authorship debate. And much more!
London International Mime Festival has a long and distinguished history since it was created in 1977. It was founded by Joseph Seelig and mime/clown, Nola Rae to showcase the work of British visual theatre artists, many better known abroad than in their own country.
The Festival programme spans the spectrum of wordless performance including live art, physical theatre, new circus, puppetry and object theatre.
Some of the venues include
Barbican, Jacksons Lane, Lilian Baylis Studio, Platform Theatre, Shoreditch Town Hall, Soho Theatre, Southbank Centre and The Peacock Theatre.
