This Week 21st – 27th April

21 April 2014 Charlie Kenber

Check out our pick of some events in London this week!

Sundance Film Festival
What to expect:
a one-stop shop for indie cinema!

This weekend Sundance – the US’s legendary film festival comes to the UK for its third year. With a programme bursting with screenings of independent film, live music, panel discussions and special events, the weekend has something for everyone. With classic films showing such as Christopher Nolan’s Memento, Tarantino’s Reservoir Dogs and Debra Granik’s Winter’s Bone, this year’s line-up is unmissable.

Sundance London is on at the O2 from 25th – 27th April. Further information and tickets available here.

Glorious Georges
What to expect:
an array of events and transformations to celebrate the Hanoverian accession

To celebrate the 300th anniversary of the Hanoverian succession, Historic Royal Palaces are putting on a spectacular array of events and exhibitions across three of their Palaces: Hampton Court, Kensington and Kew! Each building is focussing on one of the three Georges, combining period restoration and re-presentation of State Apartments with newly loaned paintings, as well as a packed programme of events and talks. Positively marvellous!

Find out more about the entire season of Glorious Georges here!

Titus Andronicus
What to expect:
a Tarantino-esque visceral experience

This production of Shakespeare’s bloody Roman epic first appeared at Shakespeare’s Globe in 2006, when it went down a treat. So don’t miss the chance to catch it this time as Lucy Bailey returns to the production. The play follows Roman general Titus returning from war and finding himself in a dreadful cycle of mutilation, rape and murder. The play has a remarkable energy and bite, and where better to see it than at Shakespeare’s Globe!

Titus Andronicus is on at Shakespeare’s Globe from 24th April until 13th July. Tickets from £5, available here.

Rendez-vous with French Cinema in the UK
What to expect:
a festival of Frence film!

UniFrance films presents this week-long celebration of all Francophone cinema. The country’s output this year has been as varied and vibrant as ever, so why not check out a range of films from Albert Dupontel’s 9 Month Stretch to the works of art house favourite Jean-Pierre Jeunet – of Amélie fame – and master filmmakers Alain Resnais and Bertrand Tavernier! On top of that are screenings of classic French movies, and appearances by special guests including Terry Gilliam and Jean-Pierre Jeunet himself!

The festival runs from 23rd – 30th April. Further information available here.

Archimedes’ Principle

What to expect: fringe theatre with punch

This play at the recently opened Park Theatre is a translation of a Spanish original: following a sell-out run across the Pyrenees, it makes its UK premiere. The show questions how much we can really know about each other, in a world where stories of seem to appear in newspapers almost daily. So head over for an evening of top-notch theatre!

Archimedes’ Principle is on at the Park Theatre until 11th May. Tickets £12 - £19.50, available here.
