Money, 42-44 Bermondsey Street, London

Shunt know all about spectacle. For this, their first company show since 2006's creepy Rear Window homage Amato Saltone, they have created a theatrical space of breathtaking ambition and invention. Having moved from their usual home in the spooky vaults underneath London Bridge station, the experimental theatre collective are currently holed up in an abandoned cigar warehouse on nearby Bermondsey Street.

Observations: A big 'Money' move for Shunt

It has one of the finest – and most atmospheric – venues in London, burrowed at the end of a deep, dark tunnel in the eerie vaults under London Bridge station. Now the experimental-theatre collective Shunt is moving up in the world with its first new show since 2006's Rear Window-inspired Amato Saltone, and an exciting new space. It has acquired a tobacco warehouse (once owned by Fidel Castro, apparently) on nearby Bermondsey High Street, inside which David Rosenberg and his team have constructed a "massive three-storey Victorian machine structure" for their new work, Money.

Observations: Werner Herzog as (and where) you've never seen him before

We've had pop-up shops and theatre, now it's the turn of pop-up cinema. Until the end of October, 26 films by legendary German screenwriter and director Werner Herzog are being shown in a series of rare screenings in unusual spaces around London. Timed to coincide with the Werner Herzog: Conquest of the Useless event at London's Royal Festival Hall on 3 October, where Herzog himself will be in conversation, each venue chosen for a screening has been matched to the subject of the film being shown.

Del'Aziz, 11 Bermondsey Sq, London SE1

It's the dog days of summer, you're stuck in London, the weather is humid, grumbly and headache-y, and no new independently owned restaurants are opening this month. You're starving and want to be transported, gastronomically speaking, from the English summer. You want to eat somewhere with a reek of charred flesh, an abrasive tang of roasted spices, a fume of bletted exotic fruits and the dirty, ashen feel of coffee grounds in tiny cups. You aren't quite sure which cuisine is calling you, but you know it's from somewhere between Marrakesh and Madagascar.

Bites: The fine art of dining

This Bites correspondent has just returned from California, where the most impressive restaurant was in the 29 Palms Inn in the tiny desert town of Twentynine Palms. What made it great? Eating fresh-from-the-ground veggies, surrounded by great pieces by local and visiting artists. A feast for the eyes and stomach – I returned with a Christy Anderson artwork as well as a diet enriched with new-season asparagus.
