Blind Summit: The Heads

Enter a world of illusion in a dark world of puppetry, animatronics, and creepy clown theatre. The International Mime Festival is an artistic circus with fifteen intense, unusual, and cutting edge performances from Australia, Belgium, China, France, Germany, Israel, Italy, Russia, Switzerland, and Britain. It is a truly multi-cultural experience featuring after-show workshops and discussions. With performances running until the 27th of January across London, it will be a mesmerising festival.

The Cardinals
Until 19th January, 8pm
Roundhouse Studio Theatre, 15

This two-hour, biblical puppet show reveals famous incidents from the Crusades in thought-provoking, witty, and hugely entertaining ways.

Yeung Fai
Until 19th January, 7.45pm
Barbican Pit, 16

The story of Yeung Fai is told through traditional Chinese puppetry. It is about the young boy's journey to freedom after his family's ancient craft is banned during Mao's Tse Tung's Cultural Revolution. There is an after-show discussion on the 17th January.

Les Hommes Vides
17th - 26th January
Soho Theatre, 8 Monday-Saturday 6.30pm & 9pm, Saturday matinees: 4.30pm & 5.30pm
After-show discussion: Mon 21 Jan (after 6.30pm performance)

A charming, but eerie twenty minute puppet show, Les Hommes Vides is a surreal slapstick comedy with poetry and prizes.
