ON MIME FESTIVAL
The annual celebration of physical theatre is in full swing across a number of venues. It runs until the end of the month, with highlights including Belgium’s award-winning, surreal clown-act Okidok, UK female acrobatic trio Mimbre with their lyrical show Until Now – both at the Southbank Centre – and The Mill by physical theatre troupe Ockham’s Razor, an extraordinary show at the Royal Opera House tonight and tomorrow. See www.mimefest.co.uk for listings and prices.
PAJAMA MEN AT SOHO THEATRE
Physical theatre of a different kind over at the Soho Theatre, where the USA’s hilariously inventive double act Pajama Men have extended their run into next month. Expect a panoply of bizarre characters, surreal storytelling and quickfire gags that will leave you hurting from laughter. Until 6 Feb, Soho Theatre, 21 Dean St, W1D 3NE. www.sohotheatre.com.
