Following their resounding success at London International Mime Festival 2019, Daniel Hay-Gordon and Eleanor Perry return as Thick & Tight with a programme of brand new works combining dance, mime and queer culture.

Apparitions of infamous and remarkable characters from contemporary history take shape throughout the evening: Winston Churchill, Marlene Dietrich, Andy Warhol and a two-headed Barbara Cartland as well as the British film maverick Derek Jarman and French literary icon Marcel Proust. Thick & Tight strive to unveil these lives in new, explosive and thought-provoking ways, offering a full and raucous evening of entertainment revealing our shared humanity.

Thick & Tight are joined by artists from Corali Dance Company, UK leaders in dance by artists with learning disabilities and fabulous soloists: Harry Alexander (Michael Clark Company), Vidya Patel (BBC Young Dancer South Asian finalist) and Edd Arnold (BalletBoyz, Russell Maliphant) with design by Tim Spooner.

★★★★★ "A subversive delight… Superbly funny and surprisingly poignant…"

Co-commissioned by London International Mime Festival and Edge Hill University for LEAP 2019 Dance Festival. Supported by The Place through Choreodrome with in-kind support from Laban and Sadler's Wells.
