Dorrance Dance ETM: Double Down

  • Sadler's Wells Theatre

Michelle Dorrance brings tap into the age of electronic music with collaborator Nicholas Van Young. Tap has always been a way of talking to the stage, now with Van Young’s electronic tap boards, the stage is able to talk back, as every step, swipe, and scrape sets off an element of sound, building musical loops, turning the stage into a musical instrument in its own right.

Fall Out, See The Sound. Feel The Movement

  • The Tabernacle

The show begins a journey through quintessential jazz entangling movement within the graceful perspective of tap dance. Conversations of question and answer between soloists of the band and the performers, expose emotions and trigger manoeuvres back and forth between each art form on stage.
Lead by a live musical force the show takes an experimental ride attempting to understand a journey of falling out of love. In particular, these fervent dancers find ways to uncover their passion, love and raw relationship for tap dance. Using the sparse set up of the wooden boards concealing how love can never be defined, Fall Out pushes the boundaries of strength and intensity through the bare sounds of music and dance, articulated through complex rhythms and spectacularly technical performance.

Rhythm and Listening - Body Music/Percussion Workshop with Pedro Consorte from STOMP!

The purpose of this workshop is to provide creative dynamics that stimulate the body senses and challenge the participants to research, compose and improvise with the body's music. 

Through rhythmic games of body percussion, voice, improvisation, collective composition, sound and movement, the group will interact and at the same time mature its listening skills.
