Matt Mullican: Art & hypnosis

Matt Mullican: The Sequence of Things at Camden Arts Centre
 
I am not a fan of mega blockbuster art exhibitions, often I find them over-hyped and mentally exhausting. There are some smaller and out-of-the-centre art centres/galleries that I love visiting and Camden Arts Centre (in Hampstead) is one of them.
Recently, I went to [...]

Miss Revolutionary Idol Berserker

Posted on July 5, 2016 by Toothpicker

 
Amidst the Brexit storm, a Japanese company of 25 performers brought chaos and frenzy to the Pit at the Barbican; nonetheless it was still more predictable and endurable than the political turmoil that was unfolding during the week.
Part of LIFT Festival 2016, the sold out 45-minute show Miss Revolutionary Idol Berserker pays [...]

The Paper cinema at work
 
As a fan of paper, puppetry and animation, I was feeling quite ecstatic when I found out about a one-day live animation workshop with The Paper cinema at the Little Angel Theatre in Islington.
Famed for their charming 'Odyssey' show premiered in 2012, The Paper Cinema was founded in [...]

London Mime festival 2015 & more

Posted on February 15, 2015 by Toothpicker

While I am still sorting out my photo collection and blog entries on Portugal, I shall review some amazing performances that I saw after my holiday at the London International Mime festival in January. Luckily, I had pre-booked the tickets in advanced, because most of the shows I saw were sold out [...]

Posted on November 22, 2014 by Toothpicker

 
Around this time last year, I saw a few puppetry performances at the Suspense festival (see my previous blog entry here), but for some reason, the festival is not taking place this year. However, all is not lost as there is Pie’s Mimetic Festival, a two week celebration of the emerging [...]

I used to spend much my time hanging out at the ICA, yet since summer, I have been frequently visiting another new arts/cultural space, The Proud Archivist in Haggerston (an area where I was not familiar with before). I have never eaten in the restaurant downstairs [...]

SIRO-A in London

Posted on October 14, 2014 by Toothpicker

 
I remember seeing the promotional poster for the Japanese multimedia theatrical performance group SIRO-A in London last year, and it triggered my interest to see the show. But as always, with so much happening in this city, it is easy to miss events even if you made a mental note of it.
Thankfully, and [...]

Posted on July 17, 2014 by Toothpicker

Being one of the most multicultural and diverse cities in the world, it is easy to find different arts and cultural events in London including many Asian-related ones.
Since June I have attended several Japanese cultural events which offer a glimpse of the past, current and future arts scene in Japan. As someone [...]
