London International Mime Festival (LIMF), the UK’s annual festival of contemporary visual theatre, runs from Wednesday 12 January to Sunday 6 February 2022 with 14 productions including 7 co-commissioned works at venues across London.
2022 sees British work firmly centre stage with Sean Gandini’s contemporary juggling stars opening the season with a dazzling new show inspired by Merce Cunningham moves, whilst Barely Methodical Troupe reprises its thrilling Kin, one of several exceptional works by some of this country’s most exciting young circus-theatre artists. Other UK highlights include premieres by Opposable Thumb, Theatre Re, The PappyShow, Thick & Tight and a restaging of Vanishing Point’s international hit, Interiors. From France there are spellbinding productions from LIMF favourites, Stereoptik and Aurélien Bory’s Compagnie 111.
This year’s five, exclusive, festival-commissioned short films, screening online, are all by international artists, and there is a special movie collaboration with the Barbican featuring Belgium-based physical comedy masters, Abel & Gordon. Post-show discussions with creators and performers and expertly led workshops complete the programme.
