Lucinda Rogers draws London’s changing landscape, and her new series of large-scale drawings captures the gentrification of Dalston, exploring the tension between local communities and property developers driving up land value. Over the past months Rogers has documented Ridley Road Market – in operation since the 1880s and one of London’s oldest east-end institutions – capturing its unique residents, shops and stalls, in the tradition of artist-as-reporter. Until 11th Feb, House of Illustration, Granary Sq N1C. More details and tickets here
THEATRE: Real Magic
Part cabaret act, part mind-reading feat, the performers from theatre group Forced Entertainment are promising an “impossible illusion” with their boundary-pushing new show Real Magic. Audiences will be led on a “hallucinatory journey through a tale of optimism”, but nothing is set to be straightforward – so expect “absurd disconnection” (whatever that is) and even a chaotic, riotous and madcap gameshow. Intriguing if you like your theatre immersive. 14th –18th Nov. Tickets from £10 Platform Theatre, 1 Handyside Street N1C 4AA. More details here
