An Evening with Thick and Tight - Leaf Hall Eastbourne, 23 March, Sussex Dance Network


In this talk presented by Sussex Dance Network and Devonshire Collective, Thick & Tight discuss their creative methods, processes and inspirations. They show excerpts of their latest show A Night with Thick & Tight, a triple bill looking at Queen Victoria, Marilyn Monroe and Claude Cahun, among others.

Thick & Tight’s work springs from an ongoing exploration into the idea of ‘queerness in dance’ and its relevance for non-dance/LGBTQ+ audiences. They aim to present dance in solidarity with the past and present in queer culture, through the content and style of their work.

Icons, drama, high camp, humour, struggle and resistance are depicted as the lives of well known people are examined in intricately crafted pieces of theatre. The show is a creative talk with extracts of video, costume and movement.
