Tireless: A Tap Dance Experience Curated by Michelle Dorrance

Jun 28 – Jul 2

For the first time ever, astonishing tap artists from our backyard and beyond come together in a program curated and introduced by the “tireless ambassador of tap” Michelle Dorrance (The New York Times). TIRELESS exhibits the endless talent, depth, and perseverance of the international tap community.

A Jacob’s Pillow Dance Award recipient and MacArthur ‘Genius’ Fellow, Dorrance introduces this Pillow-exclusive engagement featuring tap dancer and bassist couple Reona and Takashi Seo of Japan in AUN; Chicago-based choreographer and performer Jumaane Taylor and his ensemble work Supreme Love; Joe Orrach of San Francisco in his solo performance entitled In My Corner; and tap dancing siblings Joseph and Josette Wiggan of Los Angeles.

TWO PERFORMANCES ONLY
May 26th & 27th @ 8pm

In an art form where women have played second fiddle to men time and again for decades (and in light of a recent surge in women’s movements of all kinds) PERSIST celebrates the unique, varied, artistic voices of six female choreographers including world premiere works by Kristi Burris, Megan Davis, and Patti Vickerman alongside returning audience favorites including Star Dixon’s critically acclaimed Ultralight Beam. From driving, pulsating rhythms to delicate, hopeful gestures, PERSIST promises to be another stunning example of Chicago tap dance excellence.

Choreography by: Krisi Burris, Megan Davis, Jenna Deidel, Star Dixon, Kendra Jorstad & Patti Vickerman
