September events 2010

Hong Sang-soo

So many highlights this month it’s difficult to know where to start.

Film

Festival and Music

  • The Thames Festival brings laid-back acid jazz from Winterplay, creative gugak from Won Il’s Baramgot (undoubtedly the standout live Korean performance of the year when they came in 2008) and lively physical theatre from Korea’s breakdancers in Breakout! 11 – 12 September just behind the London Eye. You can even get your photo taken with Pororo the little Penguin.
