Welcome to the 2019 London International Mime Festival
UK artists are at the forefront of this year’s programme of contemporary visual theatre. Barely Methodical Troupe opens the festival with its latest acrobatic spectacular Shift at the Platform Theatre, whilst Gandini Juggling & Alexander Whitley, and Gecko make their main stage debuts at Sadler’s Wells and Barbican theatres respectively.
Thick & Tight delight at the Lilian Baylis Studio. Stan’s Cafe makes a rare London appearance with The Capital, whilst Green Ginger explores the inner reaches of the human body in Intronauts, both at Jacksons Lane. Theatre Re premieres its latest creation, Birth, a LIMF co-commission, at Shoreditch Town Hall.
The festival’s international dimension features companies from Belgium, Finland, France, New Zealand, Norway and Spain. Debut participants include performance artist, Olivier de Sagazan, ice puppeteers Théâtre de l’Entrouvert, and 2018 Total Theatre Award winners Focus & Chaliwaté with Backup. Returning guests with new productions include Plexus Polaire, Thomas Monckton, Les Antliaclastes, and Olivier Award winners Peeping Tom. Xavier Bobés reprises his atmospheric salon performance for an audience of five, Things Easily Forgotten.
Our work is widely accessible, but if you have specific questions that you’d like to ask us about the suitability of a show, please contact us. For our deaf and hearing-impaired audience, and for people interested in attending Green Ginger’s touch tour, you can check our guidance notes.
