‘It might just be, you know, a certain move of the neck or a facial expression. You don’t have to give any more information. They know who it is.’
Janny James, tribute artist

Choreographer Claire Cunningham and her ensemble of leading disabled performers invited us to join them for a drink at a Cheetham Hill social club as they pull back the curtain on the glittering and mysterious world of the professional tribute artist.

Fresh from intimate conversations and crash courses with a range of tribute artists, Thank You Very Much takes to the floor in witty and revealing fashion. The company pull on their sparkling costumes to ask: Who have we been trying to be all our lives? Has it ever been our choice? And is anyone ever truly incomparable?

Commissioned by Manchester International Festival, National Theatre of Scotland and Perth Festival in association with tanzhaus nrw and Dance Umbrella. Produced by Manchester International Festival and National Theatre of Scotland.
