The rare artist who can make a dance that is as innovative as it is engaging, MacArthur Award-winning tap dancer Michelle Dorrance leads a company comprised of some of the best hoofers in the business. For its Joyce engagement, Dorrance Dance performs Myelination, “a glittering closer that needs to have a second life.” (The New York Times) Newly reborn and extended, this work includes original, live music composed by Gregory Richardson and Donovan Dorrance, the choreographer’s talented brother, featuring eclectic-soul vocalist Aaron Marcellus. Also on the program is the world premiere of Until The Real Thing Comes Along (a letter to ourselves) which is set to the music of Fats Waller, and highlights the astounding skill and exuberance of this show-stopping group.
Note: There will be a 20 minute intermission between the two pieces.
