Rounding off MimeLondon

Vamos Theatre: Boy On The Roof
1 – 4 February

When neighbours Liam and Albert’s paths cross, no one can fathom what they have in common. But the boy and the man share more than they know, and what slowly grows is a friendship that both of them need, even if the rest of the world can’t see it. Presented by the UK’s leading full mask theatre company, Boy on the Roof is a tale of friendship, motivated by real experiences of ADHD, loneliness, aging, hearing loss, connection and community.

Vamos Theatre: Full Mask Masterclass

Through exercises and shared exploration, this two-day masterclass introduces mask characterisation, mask physicality, and techniques such as clocking, stillness and isolation, helping to build confidence and understanding of mask performance.
