Thick & Tight return to The Lowry with Short & Sweet, an amuse-bouche platter of 9 new works designed to excite, provoke and satisfy.
Created by Eleanor Perry & Daniel Hay-Gordon, this thoroughly modern variety show mixes dance, drag, lip-syncing and satire. Short & Sweet brings a host of famous and infamous characters to life: Sid Vicious, Twiggy, Grace Jones, Rasputin, Edith Sitwell and everyone’s favourite avant-garde duo, John Cage & Elaine Paige. The evening includes a preview of new work inspired by Japanese Noh theatre, commissioned by the Noh Reimaged Festival.
Thick & Tight are joined by an incredible line-up of artists: Corali Dance Company, Harry Alexander, Oxana Panchenko, Azara Meghie and Connor Scott, with designs by Tim Spooner, Pam Tait and Darren Evans.
Thick & Tight is an award-winning British dance theatre company created by Eleanor Perry and Daniel Hay-Gordon. Their work takes influence from a wide range of historical, political, literary and artistic subjects, with a focus on promoting queer culture and accessibility within dance.
