OPENING the 2010 London International Mime Festival, Öper Öpis (Someone Something) is a mix of visual arts, circus, music and dance.

Directed and led by the rubber-limbed Martin Zimmermann, and composer/DJ Dimitri de Perrot, the company features some of Europe's top young circus artists who will perform at the Barbican until Saturday.

On a precariously tilting, unstable floor a daredevil game of shifting relationships, balance and control unfolds.

Driven by a live scratched soundscore, every move is a risk, every step a challenge and everyone's perspective distorted.

Performances ate at 7.45pm and tickets cost £10-£26 from www.barbican .ortg.uk or 020 7638 8891.
