London International Mime Festival – the longest-running festival of its kind – has a lot more up its sleeves than clowning and whiteface, a celebration of everything from avant-garde dance to creepy physical theatre to ultra-high concept juggling.
Sadly, the 2023 London International Mime Festival will be the last in its present form, and while it sounds like it will continue in some way, it has not sought Arts Council England funding going forwards, so this is likely be our final chance to experience the festival as a multi-event London-based affair. 
For the final time, then, these are our picks for what to see at LIMF, which runs Monday January 16–Sunday February 5 2023.

  • Theatre
  • Experimental
  • Holborn

Mask performance legends Familie Flöz – if you don’t know what mask performance is, look at the picture – return to the London International Mime Festival for the first time since 2016 with ‘Feste’, a playful physical theatre show about a chaotic wedding that’s probably less creepy than the pictures might suggest.
