December will see the launch of The Curiosity Cabaret, taking its inspiration from Renaissance Europe’s ‘cabinets of curiosities’ it’s a brand new London-based production and is the first ever cabaret interactive theatrical experience in the style of a medical lecture.

Imagine, ladies and gentlemen, an era when surgery was performed without anaesthesia, when aseptic technique and antibiotics did not yet exist. Imagine a time when doctors still clung to their superstitions and medicine was much more art than science…

Imagine no further! Join us as we step into the timeless world of The Curiosity Cabaret where past and present collide head on.

Audiences are invited to prepare their minds and senses for the magical, macabre and marvellous world of medical history. This debut show, set to take place on 2nd to 7th December is equal parts fascinating and entertaining and promises to be just the tonic for relieving the dark winter evening blues.

Review: Sadler’s Sampled – Sampled @ Sadler’s Wells

As part of the Sadler’s Sampled Festival of Dance, Sampled, a weekend of dance promised to showcase internationally renowned talent from breakdancing to tango.

On the warm Friday night the audience was buzzing with excitement including chatter not sure of what to expect and fans eager for their favourites to appear on the stage.

The series started with ‘(in between)’, a moody and abstract performance building from dancers chopping each other to the ground like woodchoppers in the English countryside. The performance continued to an exciting and loud finale with the dancers being lead by mother-nature through screams and chants.

Stuttgart Ballet was a powerful and delicate duet. Next, Storyboard P literally started with screams from across the audience with support. His entertaining performance mixed contemporary dancing similar to what can be expected from a music video and a bit of contortion.

Disappointingly, already we were racing through the performances and had arrived at the Tango World Champions. As expected the tango dancing was uplifting and surprisingly mesmerising.

The penultimate performance, The Measures Taken, was based around dancing with impressive lazers. Last, Vagabond Crew appeared like a boy band with a range of micro-performances.

Overall the performances were great introductions to many styles of dancing and making an excellent start to the weekend. The festival is genuinely unmissable.

Selection:
– (in between) choreographed by Jasmin Vardimon
– Stuttgart Ballet
– Storyboard P
– Tango World Champions
– The Measures Taken
– Vagabond Crew

The team was invited down to the second run of One Man Two Guvnors and we were definitely entertained.
The new cast never dropped the ball in this pacey production and Owain Arthur did a great job taking over from James Corden.
Owain especially shone in his moments of improvisation as he played with the audience and kept it rolling with the variety of hilarious gags.

My colleague was especially bewitched by the slick band that played at the start and through out the show. Ben Mansfield who plays Stanley Stubbers did a fantastic job and kept me in stitches.

The production is based on Goldini’s Italian Classic Comedy and is oozing with slapstick humour.
I would recommend this for all families and if you’re going on a date, this would get you in the good books.
