The PappyShow: Pit Party

The PappyShow performers blow multi coloured confetti through the air towards the camera.

Join us for an evening of radical joy, celebrating bold and beautiful dance, music and the best of vibes with performances curated by acclaimed theatre company The PappyShow.

The Pappyshow host this exciting mixed-bill of performances that showcase their own work and other outstanding artists they love. Dance, laugh and celebrate as they introduce the best of dance, physical performance, live music, spoken word and a DJ set; all with collaboration, community and showcasing marginalised identities at the heart of the night. 

Founded by Kane Husbands in 2013, The PappyShow is an ensemble theatre company of eight core friends that brings people together to move and creating space for people to dance, play and celebrate their authentic voice. As well as their critically-acclaimed productions – such as Boys, Winner of the Origins Outstanding New Work Award at VAULT Festival and OFFIE nominated GIRLS – they lead diverse workshops that centre training for everybody and all bodies.
