Conjuring up apparitions of Winston Churchill, John Cage, Elaine Paige and the inimitable Grace Jones amongst others, this dazzling retrospective of outrageously funny dance theatre exemplifies Thick & Tight’s distinctive and inventive style, revered across the UK. Tits & Teeth celebrates high and low art in all its variety, splendour and stupidity, with blistering choreography and an immaculate soundtrack.

Thick & Tight is co-directed by Daniel Hay-Gordon and Eleanor Perry, with their choreography influenced by ballet and contemporary dance and incorporating elements of queer performance. The company continually investigates a range of LGBTQ+ issues and figures, its link to dance, and is passionate about promoting queer culture, accessibility and anti-elitism through its craft.

Adam Knight, Blackpool Grand Theatre Chief Executive, said,

“Excitement is building for ‘Thick & Tight: Tits and Teeth’ at the Blackpool Grand Theatre this June! This electrifying show that combines ballet, contemporary dance, drag, satire, mime, and lip-syncing into one of the most unique variety performances I have seen touring. With dazzling portrayals of famous figures and a knockout cast, this is a must-see event. The hilarious double-headed Barbara Cartland or the imagined encounter between John Cage and Elaine Paige are not to be missed – a laugh a minute! Join us for an unforgettable evening celebrating high and low art in all its glory.”

Tits & Teeth is brought to Blackpool Grand Theatre as part of Queer Amusements, a new festival of ground-breaking multi-disciplinary art and performance across Blackpool, commissioned by Marlborough Productions as part of their series of trailblazing queer arts festivals across England, New Queers On The Block, and Blackpool community arts organisation Aunty Social. It is supported using public funding by Arts Council England.
