02 Oct LOOK AHEAD: Mimetic Festival at the Waterloo Vaults

Mimetic Festival 2014’s programme has gone live and a wealth of cutting-edge theatre and cabaret will soon be lighting up the dark tunnels of the Vaults.

Theatre highlights include: fringe favourites Antler Theatre’s Where the White Stops (Ideastap Underbelly Award Winner 2013); Kill The Beast’s The Boy Who Kicked Pigs (Time Out Critic’s Choice); new work-in-progress from award-winning puppet companies Sparkle and Dark and Flabbergast Theatre, including new puppet improv from puppet bad boys Boris and Sergey; and Mimetic bursary-winner Michael Twaits’ latest cabaret theatre extravaganza.

In the cabaret room, The Rubyyy Jones (recently featured on The Drag Queens of London, London Live) will be presenting a revue, and Neil Henry will be dazzling audiences with his award-winning magic (sell-out show Edinburgh 2014). Tricity Vogue will be also be at Mimetic with her Songs for Swinging Ukeleles, while Marcus Reeves will be performing pieces from his debut album ‘Quicksilver – The Masquerade Macabre’ ‘injecting heart and humanity into a plastic pop world’ Gay Times. Plus there’s naked stand-up from Miss Gloria Pearl – ‘Funny and genuine […] feel-good comedy at its best’ Broadway Baby, Edinburgh Fringe 2014.

For a fortnight this November, Mimetic Festival comes to Waterloo, popping up in the Vaults with the very best devised, physical and visual theatre, puppetry and cabaret.
