ADF Debut!

Chapel Hill native Michelle Dorrance brings her troupe to ADF with SOUNDspace. 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 of the feet, SOUNDspace has been adapted and continues to explore what is most beautiful and exceptional about tap dancing–movement as music. “Ms. Dorrance makes full use of tone, timbre, volume, tempo and, of course, rhythm, constructing patterns that lock together thrillingly… The main emotion that SOUNDspace produced was excitement: excitement about sounds, and about the development of this talented choreographer, the most promising one in tap right now.”– The New York Times

Post-performance discussion is Saturday, June 22.

This program is supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts.
