The Roundhouse

(0171-420 0171)

In case you don't know, is an unparalleled gang of clowns, accomplished dancers, death-defying acrobats, musicians pulling notes out of nowhere and, ultimately, frenzied drummers who can't see a bit of metal without bashing it. Tapping and bashing away, they come across like a butched-up Riverdance but with far more wit and inventiveness. This is as much about pins dropping as bin-lids clanging. World-famous since an appearance at the Oscars, they're now extending to 17 Jan 1999.
