Co-presented with San Francisco Performances
YBCA welcomes back YBCA100 honoree Michelle Dorrance with the San Francisco premiere of the celebrated ETM: Double Down project, which celebrates the extreme mobility of the percussive body, combining rhythm with interactive electronic music technology in a perfect fusion of movement and sound featuring an incredible cast of 8 amazing tap dancers and 3 musicians playing live. An exciting visual and auditory polyphony from a cabaret that merges modernity and tradition. Using original tap “instruments” designed by 2014 Bessie Award Winner Nicholas Van Young, the score is not simply danced to, but danced BY the company. With the right programming, the sound of a single footfall can range from a snare drum to a note on an arpeggio.
