London To Do List – 1-7 April 2013
Our new weekly London To Do List starts here, with some free, cheap and offbeat treats including: Project Colony at Trinity Buoy Wharf, Musical Comedy Awards, Kinema & Kocktails & much more…
Monday 1st April
Open mic madness with the most eclectic of line-ups featuring random slapstick weirdos, comics, musical prodigies, magicians and more. We were especially excited about this: JUDE COWAN MONTAGUE’S WORLD NEWS VISION – think a female Ivor Cutler rounding up the week’s current affairs in off-the-wall poetical format with ‘synth, sequencer & samples’ accompaniment…
A yank and a cockney brought together by the power of MASH-UP. Get ready for a free ride on the Pistol & Jack train.
Tuesday 2nd April
Based on Franz Kafka’s short story In The Penal Colony, Fourth Monkey’s immersive, site-specific Project Colony starts on Tuesday in the incredible Trinity Buoy Wharf. Watch the Trailer Here

Sunday 7th April
NoFit State return with BIANCO, an immersive promenade experience that takes place above, behind and all around a standing audience – “With a constantly evolving narrative set to a pounding soundtrack performed by a live band, this is the kind of all-consuming theatrical experience that can only happen at the Roundhouse.”
