This Week: 5 – 11 November

5 November 2018 Billie Manning

Miss Bugs bring their explosive pop-art to Mayfair, there's hard-hitting comedy at Soho Theatre and Bunker Theatre and a whole host of incredible musical opportunities at BBC Introducing.

Miss Bugs presents: Echo Chamber at The Gallery at 10 Hanover
British artistic duo Miss Bugs will be coming to Mayfair next month with their colourful brand of pop art. From faces made of racing cars to resin ice lollies filled with pills, Miss Bugs' work is always bold, bright and more than slightly surreal. This new solo exhibition will focus on the idea of the 'echo chamber': the way our ideas are reflected back to us ad-infinitum by our social networks, thus strengthening them, and will feature 15 new large-scale mixed media portraits including iconic faces from pop culture such as Basquiat, J F Kennedy and Lady Gaga.

Asia Week at Design Centre, Chelsea Harbour
Asia Week at Design Centre, Chelsea Harbour celebrates art, culture and creativity from China, Japan, Korea and Southeast Asia. A great mix of disciplines will be on display for the discerning eye, including acclaimed names such as Toko Shinoda, Daniel Kelly and Kenji Yoshida. An immersive series of talks, workshops, masterclasses and art tours will also explore the everlasting appeal of the Asian aesthetic and the creative osmosis between East and West. What’s more, the show is free for every visitor – though you will have to pay for the art.

Lauren Pattison: Peachy at Soho Theatre
Returning from a complete sell-out Edinburgh Fringe run, Lauren Pattison’s sophomore show Peachy transfers to Soho Theatre for one week only. Pattison has commented on the difficulty of making comedy out of happiness, but the rave reviews she's been getting don't seem to have picked up on that. She tackles mental health and class prejudices while telling the story of her peachiest year yet.

Electric by Lauren Baker at Box Galleries
Showcasing new work alongside her most celebrated light art, Lauren Baker’s Electric comes to Box Galleries this week.

Flux Theatre Present: Chutney
A new black comedy described as Animals of Farthing Wood meets American Psycho, Chutney is probably not one to bring your grandmother to. This new production from Flux Theatre tells the story of Claire and Gregg, the archetypal ‘normal’ couple: met at university, adored by each other’s parents, co-owners of a pleasant suburban home and an efficient John Lewis blender. But it soon becomes apparent that beneath their unassuming exterior they are united by an insatiable and horrific desire: to murder their neighbours’ pets, of course. Dogs not welcome.

Chutney, 6 November – 1 December, Bunker Theatre, 53a Southwark Street, SE1 1RU
