From aerial acrobatics to psychedelic puppetry, London's annual celebration of contemporary visual theatre provides eye-popping entertainment in venues across the capital.
Now in its 37th year, the festival brings together talented performers from across the globe.
The dazzling line-up includes jaw-dropping aerial theatre company Ockham's Razor, who are performing powerful acrobatics on specially designed structures at the Platform Theatre, in the University of the Arts complex in the capital's buzzing King's Cross development.
At the Barbican Pit, Yeung Fai's Hand Stories tells the true story of a young boy's escape from China to the West, where the ancient craft of puppetry – handed down through five generations of his family – was banned as it was considered decadent during Mao's Cultural Revolution.
At the Southbank Centre's Purcell Room, there's comedy, illusion, shadow puppetry and interactive film from Wolfe Bowart's Letter's End; while audiences can expect to be wowed by a popcorn volcano from French circus act My!Laika.
Meanwhile at the Roundhouse, The Cardinals tell well-known Bible stories in a beautiful and compelling way – without the use of words.
