Dorrance Dance

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
