Between October’s Halloween spookery and December’s Christmas craziness, what has November got? We’ll tell ya…

Steampunk circus with Vagabond’s Hat in Kinesonic

This month La Soirée is back, launching in the South Bank Spiegeltent on 5th, including new acts and old favourites on the little red ring stage. For further doses of circus cabaret, you can find Boom & Bang Circus at the Hippodrome Casino every Friday night.

The cringe-inducing Circus Of Horrors are on tour across the country throughout November with The Night Of The Zombie, hitting London on 23rd for one night only.

Other touring productions appearing in the capital this month include the delightful immersive dining experience of Façade from Crashmat Collective (13-14th at The Albany, 20-22nd at Arts Depot), aerial dance Rites of War from Gravity & Levity (11th at Laban Theatre),  and Kinesonic, the magical, musical circus machinery debut from Vagabond’s Hat, which plays at Jacksons Lane, also on 11th.

Jacksons Lane can always be counted on for innovative circus fare, and this November they also present visual Franco-British collaboration Dare To Sea, from Peut Etre & La Manoevre (9-16th), multimedia The Great Spavaldos, in which Il Pixel Rosso offer their audience a cinematic transformation into a circus artist (18-22nd), and aerial double bill of Handspun and Namesake from Ilona Jäntti/Ilmatila (28-29th).

For work in development, the Albany Theatre has extracts form Juggling On Tap‘s Rhythm Town on 27th and, on the 28th, Bites: Remixa cabaret of new collaborations, presented in association with Upswing.  The Place also has a programme of new collaborations and circus discussion forums with the four days of Currency 2014.

Finally, this month’s biggie is Circa‘s Wunderkammer, back from Australia and appearing at Leicester Curve from 5-8th.  Found something we’ve missed? Stick it in the comments below so we can check it out!
