Dorrance Dance: The Blues Project

March 3, 2017 8:00 PM

The Blues Project is a collaboration between?Dorrance Dance, led by the extraordinary?choreographer Michelle Dorrance, and?award-winning musician and composer Toshi?Reagon. The show features some of today?s?finest tap artists, whose percussive movement?becomes a visual and aural conversation with?music performed live by Reagon and a band?featuring acoustic and electric guitar, bass,?drums, percussion, and violin.

Michelle Dorrance?s dynamic company aims?to honor tap dance?s uniquely beautiful?history in a new and compelling context, not?by stripping the form of its tradition, but by?pushing it: rhythmically, aesthetically, and?conceptually. She is a 2015 MacArthur Fellow,?a 2014 Alpert Award Winner, and a 2013?Jacob?s Pillow Dance Award Winner.
