The Pappy Show was formed in 2013 by Kane Husbands to bring people together to move, dance, create moments of radical joy, share stories and take time just to PLAY!
That is still their mission but their identity has become clearer. They exist as a social enterprise – working across performance and platforming the marginalised identities that they believe society could do better with.
The Pappy Show is run by a core team of 10 friends. Their physical training is central to the company and we offer this for everybody and every body, no matter your previous experience. By moving, playing, talking and listening, they create rooms (physical or digital) that are full of heart and where you can just be you.
Diverse and collaborative, their productions explore identities that are rooted in the lived experience of their performers and span from the stage to the screen. Their productions BOYS and GIRLS were critically acclaimed for their vibrant, revelatory and expectation-defying explorations of contemporary masculinity and femininity. Their upcoming shows What Do You See and Black Girl Magic will delve even deeper into exploring and elevating the underrepresented identities that they want to see on stage.
