London International Mime Festival 2017
This micro-performance by Nordic Puppet Ambassadors is inspired by the story of Anne Frank. Outi Sippola directs a 15-minute glimpse into a tiny room where a girl is forced to leave behind everything she knows - a peepshow about what happens when a safe world becomes frightening.
And the coveted award for weirdest show at London International Mime Festival 2017 goes to...the man in the cartoon muscle suit. Greek director and performer Euripides Laskaridis's solo show is a surreal look at body image, gender and transformation. Challenging your ability to accept the unknown through cabaret and slapstick, he morphs from housewife to diva.
Why we love London International Mime Festival
The wonderfully wordless showcase is back and it's even showing us all how to bring the EU together. Definitely worth shouting about.
