WED 12 JAN – SUN 6 FEB 2022

LIMF this year’s 15 productions include no fewer than 7 LIMF co-commissions and puts British work centre-stage. Sean Gandini’s contemporary juggling stars open the season with a dazzling new show inspired by Merce Cunningham moves, whilst Barely Methodical Troupe reprises its thrilling Kin, one of several exceptional works by this country’s most exciting young circus-theatre artists. Other UK highlights include premieres by Opposable Thumb, Theatre Re, The PappyShow, Thick & Tight and a restaging of Vanishing Point’s international hit, Interiors. 

From France, there are spellbinding productions from LIMF favourites, Stereoptik and Aurélien Bory’s Compagnie 111.

A movie collaboration with the Barbican features Belgium-based physical comedy masters, Abel & Gordon, and this year’s five, exclusive, festival-commissioned short films, screening online, are all by international artists. Post-show discussions with creators and performers and expertly led workshops complete the programme.
