Bay Area Premiere
In her arresting tap dance work SOUNDspace—a stripped-down production free of ornate sets and glitzy costumes—acclaimed choreographer Michelle Dorrance shows us just how powerfully movement and music are entwined in the bodies of expert dancers.
In this Bay Area premiere performance, Dorrance and her company teach us how to listen and watch anew, focusing the viewer’s attention with a masterful sense of drama and a depth of expression that reveals the choreographer’s deep connection to the art form’s earliest roots. In this Berkeley visit, the troupe of 12 dancers, joined by a lone acoustic bassist, explore and exploit the unique setting and acoustics of Zellerbach Playhouse.
“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).
