Subverting some of the best-loved pieces of classical music, Derrière on a G String is a raucous new comedy dance sensation.
The piece, from choreographer Alfred Taylor-Gaunt (the award-winning The Limit, Vault Festival 2019; Stand and Deliver!, Kings Head Theatre), vocalises life’s first world problems through a hilariously imaginative series of dance and physical theatre sketches.
Following an extensive workshop over the last three years, and a sold-out run at the Tristan Bates Theatre, this fresh and mildly risqué sketch show blends the chaotic with the camp in a salacious smorgasbord of physical feats by a dynamic group of young artists. Reminiscent of the legendary comedic styling of Laurel and Hardy and Mitchell and Webb, the production aims to broaden the universal appeal of dance through comedy.
Written, directed and performed by an ensemble of young creative talent including Joshua Sinclair-Evans (Spiderman: Far From Home and The Lodge, Disney) and Sammy Moore (The Evermoor Chronicles, Disney; Father Brown, BBC), Derrière on a G String is an alternative and exciting comedy show told solely through movement, bloodshed and a whole lot of booty.
