- Date May 18

- Tickets£10 - £15
- Ages12+ guidance (some mild sexually suggestive language)
A one-hour event showcasing dance theatre in fusion with other dance and performance styles and techniques, including Kathak, breaking, spoken word and improvisation.
Dance theatre company Thick & Tight present three short solos combining different dance styles, made with some wonderful collaborators; Azara Meghie, Vidya Patel and Corali Dance Company. Thick & Tight and the other artists will first talk about how they worked together to make dances which celebrate the meeting of different art forms, before performing them live.
This evening should illustrate Thick & Tight’s belief in dance as a political art form with the power to challenge stigma and elitism, whilst remaining entertaining and accessible.
