This is the busiest month we can remember post-Covid for live events. And for K-pop it’s the busiest month ever, with the o2 Arena hosting no fewer than five nights of performance. Plus two superb dance companies and three talking rice cookers.

Live performance:

– Dance

  • The Ambiguous Dance Company comes to the Coronet Theatre with Rhythm of Human for three days, 13 – 15 Sept
  • The Eun-Me Ahn Company comes to the Barbican for four days, 20 – 23 Sept, followed by two performances in the Lowry, Salford, 26 – 27 Sept, with a production entitled Dragons

– Theatre

  • The unique talking rice-cooker experience Cuckoo by Jaha Koo is at the Bridewell Theatre, 14 – 16 Sep 2023

– K Pop and indie

– World and traditional music

– Western classical music


Special events and festivals

Talks, classes, seminars


  • We’re unaware of any screenings this month, though it’s possible the KCC might pull one out of the bag.
  • Booking for October’s BFI Film Fest opens on 12 Sept. As far as we can see the only Korean movie in the schedule is the one at the top of my wishlist: Kim Jee-woon’s Cobweb, on 13 and 14 Oct.
