Award-winning dance duo Thick & Tight lead a one-day workshop for professional and semi-professional performers, revealing the working methods behind their latest show Thick & Tight: Romancing the Apocalypse. Thick & Tight bring famous faces back to life on the dance floor, exploring the eccentricities of human nature.
Participants will learn material from the show, consisting of dance, mime, acting, drag, lip-syncing and precise musicality, and will respond to our research in a creative session. Expect to meet Barbara Cartland, Andy Warhol and Derek Jarman, playing with ideas of humour, gender, characterisation, history, sexuality, surrealism and satire.
Daniel and Eleanor trained at the Rambert School and have been presenting work as Thick & Tight since 2012 to public and critical acclaim. Romancing the Apocalypse
can be seen as part of LIMF at the Lilian Baylis Studio at Sadler’s Wells (9-11 Jan).
