Intimate folkpop from the acclaimed Irish singer-songwriter Damien Rice. His latest album 'O' has been described as "one of the most inspired debut Irish albums ever, a ramshackle, freewheeling document of young love and loss."
A pioneering artist whose work spans theatre, cabaret and mime, Dickie Beau elevates the drag tradition of lip-synching through a performance style known as ?playback'. Using salvaged audio recordings which he edits into digital scripts, he channels extraordinary voices onstage, creating an eerie archive of those who might be lost, or are no longer living. Winner of this year's Oxford Samuel Beckett Theatre Trust Award, Beau makes his directorial debut with a haunting ensemble piece, inspired in part by the history of image-making and funerary rituals. Uncanny sound and physical performance animate psychedelic scenes that play on ideas of presence and absence. Running time: 1hr 15mins/no interval. Age guidance: 16+ (contains adult content)
Audacious theatre artist and puppeteer Basil Twist collaborates with master musician Yumiko Tanaka on a spectacular visual journey inspired by dogugaeshi - the Japanese art of creating beautiful illusions through perspective. As more than 100 handpainted gilt and paper panels unfold, revolve and slide, images from both ancient and contemporary Japan are revealed. Bamboo thickets, soaring bridges and dense cityscapes materialise while wide-eyed foxes with drooping moustaches dance mid-air. Dogugaeshi layers brilliant puppetry with video projection and electronic sound to give this rarely seen, ancient craft a contemporary spin. In keeping with Japanese puppetry performances, the musical accompaniment is played live on a three-stringed shamisen.
Running time: 1hr with no interal. Age guidance 10+
London International Mime Festival (LIMF)
Iron & Wine is the musical project of Sam Beam, a South Carolina-born former film studies lecturer, now living in Texas. A painter also, Beam's roots in the visual arts signpost the refined and somber storytelling that weaves throughout his music. With a softly spoken delivery conveying a certain cinematic gravitas, Beam conjures wonderfully evocative narratives rich in downhome symbolism and vivid characterization.

The Mariinsky Opera Chorus explores the timeless choral music of the Russian Orthodox Church, and music rooted in that same tradition. The Mariinsky Opera Chorus is a superb virtuoso ensemble in its own right. Tonight, chorus director Andrei Petrenko explores Russian Orthodox choral music and folksong, the twin traditions that inspired Shchedrin and Mussorgsky - including Valery Gavrilin's remarkable Perezvony, a large-scale choral fresco deeply rooted in Russian folklore. Instrumental music is forbidden in the Russian Orthodox Church, so Russia has developed a choral tradition of unique character and resonance. The Mariinsky Theatre Chorus is part of that tradition; but with a full strength of over 130 singers, it's also an award-winning symphonic chorus in its own right. Under Andrei Petrenko, it's well-placed to explore the traditions that shaped the music of Mussorgsky and Shchedrin - and it's hard to imagine more committed champions of Perezvony (Chimes), here receiving a rare western performance as a complement to the two operas in the Mariinsky's Barbican residency.
