Tristan Bruns & Ian Berg Premier New Choreography In THRUST!

13516523_844283199037909_6893175302484813305_n

THRUST! is the opening performance of Tapman Productions’ 2016-2017 season. This unique double feature of tap and modern dance showcases the work of long-time Tapman Productions collaborators Tristan Bruns (tap) and Kate O’Hanlon (modern) and special guest choreographer Ian Berg (tap). The pieces performed are created specifically for this thrust (three-sided) stage with original music by Trainwreck Symphony and composer Carolyn O’Brien, and new arrangements of popular music.

We are pulling out all the stops for this performance, and we need your help to make it happen. For every $15 donation you make on our GoFundMe page, you’ll receive a ticket to the THRUST! performance of your choice. It’s a great way to assist our efforts to bring you this mash up show of epic proportions AND save yourself a little dough!

DONATE HERE: www.gofundme.com/TapmanTHRUST

This project is partially supported by an Individual Artist Program Grant from the City of Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs & Special Events, as well as a grant from the Illinois Arts Council Agency, a state agency through federal funds provided by the National Endowment for the Arts.
