DanceHouse presents Dorrance Dance
An expansion of a piece with the same name that originally premiered at New York City Center’s 2015 Fall for Dance Festival, Myelination (2017) has been extended into a new, full-length work featuring original, live music by Donovan Dorrance and Gregory Richardson with vocalist Aaron Marcellus. The piece, in which each dancer is both an ensemble member and an improvisational soloist, challenges the performers to take risks and achieve new heights of technical and musical execution inside of the form of tap dance.
In addition, the rarely seen, Bessie-Award winning Three to One (2011), and the whimsical Jungle Blues (2012) complete this program, illustrating the great range for which this company is known.
Polished and intimate, the Vancouver Playhouse exudes a cozy atmosphere that lends a familial dimension to dance, film and theatre performances. The open plan stage makes the space particularly appealing for acoustically-driven performances like chamber music and spoken theatre.Explore This Venue
