They've gone legit - you can get tickets through the National Theatre
Both the venue and the performers sound interesting...
>A door leads from the commuter hall of London Bridge station to a vast labyrinth beneath. This is the new home to Shunt, an artists' collective whose Dance Bear Dance won last year's Time Out Live Award. From September, the door will open each Thursday, Friday and Saturday evening for their new show Tropicana, on one of the most exciting and unsettling spaces in London.
>â€˜Many of us at the National saw Shunt's last show, Dance Bear Dance, under some railway arches in Bethnal Green. We loved it, maybe because they make the kind of theatre we never make. It was strange, wild, beautiful and funny, and it conjured astonishing things out of the darkness'
Nicholas Hytner, Director of the National
>No seating is allocated for this show. Tropicana involves some walking, standing and sitting for the audience. The show is not suitable for the under 12s. The venue is dusty, please wear suitable clothes.
