SHORT & SWEET

SHORT & SWEET is our new show, an amuse-bouche platter of 9 new works designed to excite, provoke and satisfy.

A dazzling and witty variety show… a true masterclass in dance and satire

***** The Stage

 


This thoroughly 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, 8 Edith Sitwells 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 an incredible line-up of artists: Corali Dance Company, Harry Alexander, Oxana Panchenko, Azara Meghie and Connor Scott, with designs by Tim Spooner, Pam Tait, Claire Ashley and Darren Evans.
