Figs in Wigs: Often Onstage, performance, Battersea Arts Centre, 8pm

Often Onstage is an offbeat facetious romp that explores the ins and outs of theatre through the medium of dance. Expect nods to the new, bows to the bard, blood baths and drag kings. With one step forward and two hundred steps back, this choreographic exercise in comings and goings gleefully disrupts traditional theatrical conventions.. unearthing dormant anxieties about life choices along the way.
