If you are put off by festivals because of the loud noise that usually accompanies them, then you might be pleasantly surprised when a hush descends across several venues in London this month.

Enter a Vortex where airborne creatures fly across the stage in a dark show about identity, and the horror we face when our defences are stripped away.

Lebensraum is a magical silent comedy about two inventors. Everything in their house is multifunctional: a fridge is also a bookcase, a bed is also a piano. Their lives a smooth running until they invent a female robot to do the chores.
All the events are either making their UK or London premiere, and with amazing acrobatics, mesmerising optical illusions, puppetry, and more, the performers are not going to be the only ones left speechless.
