Subverting some of the best-loved pieces of classical music, Derrière on a G String is a raucous new comedy dance sensation from choreographer Alfred Taylor-Gaunt (the award-winning The Limit, Vault Festival 2019; Stand and Deliver!, Kings Head Theatre), vocalising life's first world problems through a hilariously imaginative series of dance and physical theatre sketches.


Derrière on a G String will be at Lilian Baylis Studio, Sadler's Wells Theatre from 1 to 4 October 2019.


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 stylings of Laurel and Hardy and Mitchell and Webb, the production aims to broaden the universal appeal of dance through comedy.


Derrière on a G String is 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!


Choreographer and Director Alfred Taylor-Gaunt said ...


"I think people tend to have quite a fixed idea of what dance is and it puts them off coming to see it.


They think it's either going to be twee, dated and dull, or weird and inaccessible.


I love dance, but far too frequently even I find myself just bored or baffled while watching it.


I wanted to make something that everyone would enjoy - something even my Dad would find entertaining!


I'd like this show to be the 'gateway drug' for non-dance audiences, creating a bridge between dance and more widely popular forms of theatre to broaden the audience for the dance industry."


Synopsis


Very fun, quite silly, and rather naughty; this new comedy gleefully subverts some of the best-loved pieces of classical music in ways you've never thought of them before.


From chaos to carnage; from carnal to camp, Derrière on a G String comments, without words, on the daily struggles of modern life.


With a cast of some of dance-theatre's most exciting young talent performing an hilarious original series of dance and physical theatre sketches by Alfred Taylor-Gaunt, it's an evening to expect the unexpected.
