STG Presents Dorrance Dance at The Moore Theatre on May 5, 2022!

SOUNDspace by Dorrance Dance

SOUNDspace was originally a site-specific work that explored the unique acoustics of New York Cityʼs St. Markʼs Church through the myriad sounds and textures of the feet. Since then, the 2013 work has been adapted and continues to expand the audience of an original American art form.

Join us as Dorrance Dance explores new possibilities of the relationship between sound and movement, and creates a unique and breathtaking meeting of past traditions and contemporary techniques.

“Ms. Dorrance makes full use of tone, timbre, volume, tempo and, of course, rhythm, constructing patterns that lock together thrillingly.”
– Brian Seibert, The New York Times

“During the hour-long dance’s most astounding section, the spotlight stayed below the knees to show how much [Ms. Dorrance] could make from how little. A tight row of feet barely lifted off the ground, only sidling sideways and rumbling from toe to heel. The City Center crowd — huge by tap standards — punctuated the mesmerizing minimalism with a frenzy of cheering.”
- Apollinaire Scherr, Financial Times

Dorrance Dance is an award-winning tap dance company based in New York City. Founded in 2011 by Artistic Director and 2015 MacArthur Fellow Michelle Dorrance, the company shares the incredibly dynamic range that tap dance has to offer through performance & education. Their goal is to engage with audiences on a musical and emotional level, and to share the complex history and powerful legacy of this American art form throughout the country and the world.

“...a sonic distillation of a blistering American past and its perilous present, with a transcendent strength of spirit woven through.”
