Short and Sweet

Thick & Tight returns 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 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 a line-up of artists including Corali Dance Company, Harry Alexander, Oxana Panchenko, Azara Meghie and Connor Scott, with designs by Tim Spooner, Pam Tait and Darren Evans. Stage Manager: Carly Hook.
