Thick & Tight On The Edge

9 October 2019 | 7:30pm - 9:00pm | The Arts Centre | £10 / £8

Premiere of new work from the award-winning Thick & Tight.

Featuring a curtain-raiser created in collaboration with students from Edge Hill University, a new solo made for Kathak dancer Vidya Patel and a brand new show performed by Daniel Hay-Gordon and Eleanor Perry alongside artist Tim Spooner.

Expect to be enthralled as infamous historical figures are brought to life through mime, lip sync and dance; Winston Churchill, Marcel Proust, Derek Jarman and Barbara Cartland. Thick & Tight are concerned with furthering queer culture in dance, sitting somewhere between high art and populism. This entertaining and offbeat programme delves into political conversations around feminism, immigration policies, the loss of nature and the HIV crisis.
