San Francisco Performances presents:

Dorrance Dance, The Blues Project

Thur-Sat, March 16-18, 2017 at 7:30 pm, San Francisco


Tap dance, America's most long-standing indigenous jazz vernacular, is here to receive its due. Winner of the 2015 Bessie Award for Outstanding Production, The Blues Project, co-presented with YBCA, is the apotheosis of MacArthur "genius" Michelle Dorrance's vision of honoring and pushing the boundaries of tap tradition, bringing it into a sharp, contemporary focus. Blues icon Toshi Reagon,the band BIGLovely, and nine dancers celebrate the confluence of quintessential American dance and music in astonishing tap solos and dazzlingly complex ensembles. According to the New York Times, "Ms. Dorrance, a brilliant conductor, pushes the boundaries of tap while exposing its true nature: that it is music. "
