Mimetic Festival returns for its 3rd Year at new location, The Vaults!
Mimetic or mimesis is defined as being ‘the imitative representation of the real world in art and literature’ (Oxford Dictionary) and this is a word that most definitely captures the essence of The Mimetic Festival, which is set to transform the atmospheric Vaults in Waterloo from Monday 17th- Saturday 29th November.
Curated by award winning theatre company, Finger in the Pie, The Mimetic Festival returns for its 3rd year, taking on the subterranean climes of the capital. As the worlds of mime, puppetry, physical theatre and cabaret collide, the festival seeks to unveil the unknown, looking to challenge the conventional, placing the spotlight on the otherwise ignored. Showcasing the very best in European theatre making, artists hail from the prestigious Lecoq School to the London International School of Arts. Whether it’s Saskia Solomons‘ unique combination of clowning, mime and puppetry in the hilarious show Humphrey, to the winners of last year’s Mimetic Audience Award, Clout Theatre, who will be returning to the festival with their take on absurdist poet, Daniil Kharm‘s The Old Woman story in How a Man Crumbled, The Mimetic Festival promises to be an event not to be missed, providing a labyrinth of new ideas whilst pushing the theatrical envelope!
The Mimetic Festival will take place between Monday 17th- Saturday 29th November at The Vaults in Waterloo. For more information on the festival, visit here…
