Theatre closures due to coronavirus outbreak
From Saturday 15 August 2020, indoor performances at London theatres are allowed (with social distancing).
Outdoor performances (where possible) can also go ahead.
However, most theatres remain closed as they either do not have outside spaces or regard the need for social distancing as uneconomic.
The show below is due to open after the reopening date given above so it is possible it will go ahead, but you are advised to check the booking link to confirm.
10 to 14 Nov 2020

EATING MYSELF is a powerful and vulnerable female exploration about food, the kitchen, and the act of nurturing ourselves within the construction of a woman's identity in Peruvian society.
A communal experience through the real task of cooking on stage while digging into the performer's deep fight around body image and self-care, this is.
A shared ritual with South American flavour, that pretends to take the audience back to our roots and question how different we are.
Pepa Duarte is a Peruvian actor, theatre-maker and drama teacher.
Coming from the world of devising, physical theatre and improvisation, Pepa's work combines different techniques to challenge and engage with the audience.
After over 10 years of making work and training actors in Peru, Pepa moved to London for her Master's Theatre Laboratory at RADA.
Her creations are mostly related to women rights, immigration and activism.
The show was born out of the urge to talk about the relationship between women and food, and the act of nurturing oneself and others.
Through storytelling, movement and music Eating Myself aims to bring the audience closer to their own traditions, it sees questioning and exploring our roots as a way of understanding ourselves.
Pepa uses on stage cooking to generate an intimate sensory experience full of flavour.
