Mimes set to invade London

THE London International Mime Festival is a fabulous annual festival of wordless performance spans the full mime spectrum, including live art, physical theatre, circus and puppetry.

It showcases distinguished names in the field as well as introducing innovative new artists.

Performances range from Spanish puppetry experts Teatro Corsario, who will present a gothic thriller based on the horror stories of Edgar Allan Poe, to the UK's Upswing, who weave dance, circus, shadows and animation with African spirituality in a contemporary story of love, loss and resilience.

At the end of some performances, artists return to the stage to discuss their work and answer questions from the audience.

The London International Mime Festival is on January 15-30, 2011.
