'The consistently innovative London International Mime Festival knows no boundaries.' Evening Standard
After 24 days of inspiring, exhilarating, and ground-breaking performance, LIMF 2015 closed on 31 January.
Starting with Barely Methodical Troupe, ‘brilliant emerging artists capable of opening a major international festival, a real coup for British circus’ (What’s On Stage) and finishing with Japanese puppetry in Basil Twist’s Dogugaeshi ‘such a treat to see this show' (Total Theatre) and Peeping Tom’s 32 Rue Vandenbranden ‘totally gripping from start to finish’ (Critical Dance) the festival’s eclectic programme once again brought world class visual theatre to London.
'You get acrobats, puppetry and circuses, but also some pretty fantastic international lighting artists, video artists and installationists.' Spectator
Our thanks go to each of the 18 brilliant companies who made this an especially memorable year, to our workshop leaders, to our 7 venue partners, to the journalists and critics who gave the season such widespread coverage, to our fantastic festival team, and to the public who came in record numbers.
We’ll be back in January 2016 for the Mime Festival’s 40th anniversary. Watch this space!
