London International Mime Festival brings together the best contemporary visual theatre from around the world, at venues across the capital.
Among a host of premieres and artists new to the festival, we’re delighted to bring back some of visual theatre’s most admired names in this special year including acrobat-genius Mathurin Bolze (Cie MPTA), Charleroi Danses’ Kiss & Cry and Mossoux Bonté, German Mask-theatre experts Familie Flöz, and Gandini Juggling with a hugely expanded version of its glorious Pina Bausch tribute, Smashed.
Elsewhere there’s surrealist Greek glam live art, manga-inspired drama from Italy, and extraordinary object theatre exploring neuroscience, exile, arson and the Shakespeare authorship debate. And much more!
LIMF is one of the UK’s longest established international theatre festivals, its essentially wordless programme cutting edge and defying categorization. Book early to avoid disappointment!
