As part of London’s International Mime Festival this year, Southbank Centre presents La Maldición de Poe (The Curse of Poe).

Based on stories by Edgar Allan Poe, this ‘gothic thriller’ is performed by Spain’s Teatro Corsario’s ‘puppets of terror’.

Southbank Centre’s Purcell Room, Queen Elizabeth Hall. Saturday 15 January – Wednesday 19 January.

Teatro Corsario, as you can see on their home page, also do a Vampyria show. This X-rated puppet show was performed in the UK at the ICA in 2003.


Their werewolf show, Aullidos (Howlings), was performed at the ICA in 2008.

All these performances have had excellent reviews, and so The Curse of Poe is probably well worth seeing if you are in London in January.
