London International Mime Festival
The jugglers, circus people and clowns are on their way to London. Back to being a live event this year, the London International Mime Festival features a wide variety of shows, from dance to puppetry. See classic stories reimagined and also exclusive international films. Check out the Gandini Juggling performance, an original show featuring contemporary juggling and music coming to Sadler's Wells Theatre, January 12 to 15. Also from January 26 through 29 at The Peacock is one of Britian's most popular circus companies Barely Methodical Troupe, who complete powerful acrobatics in their show 'Kin'. Another highlight is 'What Do You See?' which celebrates identity through a mixture of song, movement and costume at Shoreditch Town Hall, January 19 to 23. The festival is also hosting workshops so you can work on your own clown skills. Times and venues vary, so see the London International Mime Festival website for a complete schedule.
