Following their delirious success at LIMF19, Thick & Tight’s Daniel Hay-Gordon and Eleanor Perry return with a programme of brand-new works combining dance, mime, queer culture and outsider art.
Apparitions of infamous and remarkable characters from contemporary history take shape throughout the evening; Derek Jarman and Marcel Proust, Winston Churchill, Marlene Dietrich, Andy Warhol and a two-headed Barbara Cartland. Thick & Tight strive to unveil these lives and souls in new, explosive and challenging ways; a full and raucous evening of entertainment with an underlying desire to reveal our shared humanity.
Thick & Tight are joined by artists from Corali Dance Company (leaders in dance by artists with a learning disability) and three fabulous soloists; Harry Alexander (Michael Clark Company), Vidya Patel (BBC Young Dancer South Asian Finalist 2015) and Edd Arnold (BalletBoyz, Russell Maliphant).
‘The performers are like cultured magpies… wickedly funny’
