V & A's new Exhibition Road Quarter & Reveal Festival

Posted on July 6, 2017 by Toothpicker

 
On the last day of V & A's Reveal Festival, I visited the museum hoping to see some performances, yet I saw a transformed new quarter which took me by surprise.

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 [...]

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 [...]

Deloitte Ignite 14 at the Royal Opera House
 
I have attended the Royal Opera House's annual contemporary arts festival Deloitte Ignite for a few years now, and I think it's a highly successful event that reflects the company's ability to constantly evolve itself.
This year, the co-curator is Minn Moore Ede from the National [...]

Street artists performing in Granada
 
Flamenco is originated from the Romani people ( also known as Gitanos) living in Andalusia centuries ago, with influences from the Moors, the Jews, and the Mozarabic. Many foreigners do not realise that the essence of flamenco is not the dance itself, but rather the cante (song), one [...]

Fiesta Flamenca at The Forge

Posted on October 28, 2012 by Toothpicker

 
It has been a while since I last attended a live music/ dance gig, so when I found out about a live flamenco performance at The Forge in Camden, I suggested it to my friend, who is also a fan of different dance forms.
I only discovered The Forge last year and was [...]

Pina Bausch

Posted on June 22, 2012 by Toothpicker

I am a big fan of dance, so Sadler's Wells is one of my favourite venues in London. When I went online to book for Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch's World Citie 2012 a few months back, almost everything had sold out and I only managed to secure a side seating to see [...]

Tango moments

Tango al fresco at Regents Park
 
You don't have to be a tango dancer to appreciate this sensual and elegant dance, and I am talking about Argentinian tango, not the dramatic ballroom or 'Strictly come dancing' style. A lot of people get confused with the two as they still have this idea of [...]
