Thick and Tight: Romancing The Apocalypse
Monday, February 17th, 2020
Award-winning duo Thick & Tight present a programme of works combining dance, mime, queer culture and outsider art.
Apparitions of infamous and remarkable characters take shape throughout the evening; Derek Jarman, Marcel Proust, Winston Churchill, Andy Warhol and a two-headed Barbara Cartland. Thick & Tight unveil these lives in new, explosive and challenging ways; an entertaining and raucous evening with an underlying desire to reveal our shared humanity.
Thick & Tight’s Daniel Hay-Gordon and Eleanor Perry are joined by artist/designer Tim Spooner and two fabulous soloists; Harry Alexander (Michael Clark Company) and Vidya Patel (BBC Young Dancer South Asian Finalist).
