Giant Olive's Dance and Performance

An ambitious new dance and performance festival is running until the 29th September at The Lion and Unicorn Theatre in Kentish Town. Produced by Giant Olive, it features risk-taking, intimate plays, and exciting experimental dances. You can get tickets for either 12 or 15 plus a 1.50 booking fee.

Lookout for solo performances, such as How to Build A Shelf, which explores duplicity in one's self, and Me, myself and I, which focuses on the them of isolation. Still Going questions our relationship with art forms, while No One Told Me is a solo about sex, pregnancy, and giving birth.

Also featuring the theme of pregnancy is a multimedia excerpt from Pregnant?!, starring Mamoru Iriguchi, a pseudo-pregnant, cross-dresser. Gender is studied further in Second Skin, which delves into stereotyping, and Twisted Prey lets out the wild side of three powerful 'felines'.

If you're looking for something lyrical, a synchronised swimmer sings a ditty in Pool Piece, and can't help but relate to a love song about the drudgery of office jobs in Work Songs.

There's plenty more going on, so check out the full schedule.
