Star Dixon w/Dorrance Dance @ Singapore International Festival Of Arts

29871961_1667244619980708_75849661770754535_o

By Dorrance Dance with Toshi Reagon and BIGLovely Created by Michelle Dorrance, Derick K. Grant, Toshi Reagon, and Dormeshia Sumbry-Edwards

A spectacular evening of tap dancing set to emotive blues music.

Created by the world-class powerhouse team of Michelle Dorrance, Derick K. Grant, Toshi Reagon, and Dormeshia Sumbry-Edwards, The Blues Project brings together some of today’s best tap artists, musicians, and choreographers in an innovative evening of rhythm, original live music, explosive energy, and raw emotion. Featuring performances by Bessie award-winning tap dance company Dorrance Dance with acclaimed singer-songwriter-guitarist Toshi Reagon and BIGLovely, The Blues Project is a creative collaboration that explores the relationship between music, sound, and movement.

As described by the Washington Post, “[the] intimate and rowdy merging of dance and music, with one disappearing into the other, hits you like a sonic distillation of a blistering American past and its perilous present, with a transcendent strength of spirit woven through.” This 60-minute production features an original score composed by Reagon, and performed live with her five-piece band, BIGLovely. Choreography by Dorrance, Grant, and Sumbry-Edwards, coupled with improvisations by the versatile dancers of Dorrance Dance, drives home the powerful conversation between live music and tap dance as its own musical score.

Winner of a Bessie Award in 2015 for outstanding production, The Blues Project brings together two dynamic ensembles for a transfixing program that expands and shatters notions about their respective art forms.
