Pre-Concert Talk: Thick & Tight

Noh Reimagined

Dancer-actors Eleanor Perry and Daniel Hay-Gordon of Thick & Tight discuss the creative process behind their new piece Two Moths In Real Time, inspired by the Kyogen tradition (humorous sketches used as interludes during a longer Noh performance), which will feature in the Hall One evening concert.

Please note, this event is not included in the multi-buy offers.

About Two Moths In Real Time

British dance theatre duo Thick & Tight are delighted and honoured to be invited to respond to Noh and Kyogen. Through extensive research and insightful training with Senzaburo Shigeyama and others, we have tried to comprehend the performative, thematic and contextual elements of Noh and Kyogen, finding connections with our own practice in dance and queer performance. Two Moths in Real Time is inspired by the rhythms, structure, choreographic languages and metaphysical philosophy found in Noh and Kyogen, finding a way through precise discipline towards expressive freedom and through complexity towards simplicity.

Two Moths in Real Time explores the idea of undoing harm, of reversal as a kind of progression, unravelling the falsehood of humans being somehow separate from nature. Through the study of queer culture in both the UK and Japan, as well as research into queer ecology, we consider how the term ‘unnatural’ is often applied behaviours of the LGBTQ+ community to create divisions around who belongs in our interconnected world.

Thick & Tight is co-directed by Daniel Hay-Gordon and Eleanor Perry
