(excerpts from "The Initial Approach" (2014) and new works in progress)
2014 Alpert Award winner Michelle Dorrance collaborates with 2014 Bessie Award winner, Nicholas Young. Using tap "instruments" (of Young's original design) the score is not simply danced to, but danced BY the company. With the right programming, the sound of a singe footfall can range from a snare drum to a note on an arpeggio. Featuring vocalist Aaron Marcellus and Bassist, Greg Richardson.
