Hugh Hughes in...Wonderful World of Hugh Hughes

Last year I was chatting with Louise Jeffreys, who runs the theatre programme at the Barbican Centre, and she invited me to come to London and perform all three of the shows (Floating, Story of a Rabbit and 360) that I’ve been touring across the world over the past few years.

That is a project I call The Wonderful World of Hugh Hughes. All of my shows are performed in one week, and then again in one day at the end of the week. It’s a chance to revisit a show you’ve already seen or to catch up on some of my other shows, really. You can see as many of the shows as you like, in any order.

I’ve also created some new events (Stories from an Invisible Town, Hugh Hughes: How I Got Here) to make it feel like a very special residency.

Come and join me for it. Bring a friend along. I’m hoping that it might even put a spring in your step.

One week to go in London

Birds fly. We all know that. We can see them do it. When time flies we don’t see it in the same way. Looking back on a period when time has flown makes things look like they are going fast-forward or all in a blur. The movement of time effects our vision. The time in our minds dances…
