Craig Manson


Performance artist Craig Manson begins research & development on a new show called Backup.

Backup is about backup dancing - an energetic, fun exploration of pop concerts, commercial dance and critical success. It’s a show about reinvention, dancer’s bodies, distraction and power. Or is it? Maybe they’re all just buzzwords - who knows! Hopefully Craig will find out by the end of the week.

Craig Manson’s work is a blend of movement, humour, cabaret and theatre. He’s best known for flopping around like a naked seal at a SeaWorld show, and deep throating a Starbucks cup in time to Grindr notifications. These moments have ended up being featured at the Made in Scotland Showcase, Dance International Glasgow, The Southbank Centre, Buzzcut, Camden People’s Theatre and The CCA.
