Adrienne Arsht Center presents
DORRANCE DANCE – ETM: DOUBLE DOWN
February 5, 2020 at 7:30 p.m.
Ziff Ballet Opera House
Tickets: $40, $55, $70, $85*
Part of the 2019-2020 Knight Masterworks Dance Series made possible with the generous support of Knight Foundation
With a musical score triggered by a company of eight dancers and their fabulous footwork, ETM: Double Down takes the uniquely American dance form of tap to a new level. Tap has always been a way of talking to the stage, but with Van Young’s electronic tap boards, the stage is now able to talk back as every step, swipe, and scrape sets off an element of sound – turning the entire stage into a musical instrument.
Michelle Dorrance is one of the most sought-after tap dancers of her generation and “one of the most imaginative tap choreographers working today” (The New Yorker). Under her direction, Dorrance Dance upholds the traditions of tap dance, a uniquely American art form, while propelling them forward rhythmically, technically, and conceptually. You’ve seen her perform with Stephen Colbert on television, now MacArthur “Genius” Award recipient, Michelle Dorrance, and Bessie Award winner, Nicholas Van Young, bring tap into the age of electronic music in their internationally acclaimed collaboration, ETM: Double Down.
