About the event

Originally a site-specific work that explored the unique acoustics of New York City’s St. Mark’s Church through the myriad sounds and textures created by the performers’ feet, SOUNDspace has been adapted and continues to explore what is most beautiful and exceptional about tap dancing: movement as music.

Company Description

Dorrance Dance is an award-winning tap dance company based in New York City. The company’s work aims to honor tap dance’s uniquely beautiful history in a new, dynamic, and compelling context not by stripping the form of its tradition, but by pushing it rhythmically, aesthetically and conceptually. The company’s inaugural performance garnered a Bessie Award for “blasting open out notions of tap,” and continues its passionate commitment to expanding the audience of tap dance. Street, club and experimental dance forms – all of which are American dreams – awake to the sound of furious rhythms and find their boundaries missing.
