Dorrance Dance, Cal Performances
This is not your father's tap dance routine! A MacArthur and Alpert Award fellow, choreographer and tap dancer Michelle Dorrance is celebrated for connecting tap's history to contemporary urban culture and infusing the art form with theatricality and humor. Dorrance and her company perform a new, extended versionco-commissioned by Cal Performancesof her acclaimed work, Myelination, with original live music; the rarely seen, Bessie-Award winning Three to One; and a revival of the whimsical Jungle Blues, in a program that connects tap back to its roots in jazz and jump blues, and forward to the cadences of hip-hop and indie rock. "Dorrance... pushes the boundaries of tap while exposing its true nature: that it is music" (The New York Times).
