MICHELLE DORRANCE Three to One (music: Aphex Twin and Thom Yorke) Myelination (Cal Performances co-commission) (music: Gregory Richardson and Donovan Dorrance) Jungle Blues (music: Branford Marsalis) This is not your father's tap dance routine! A MacArthur and Alpert Award fellow, choreographer and tap dancer Michelle Dorrance / Dorrance Dance is celebrated for connecting tap's history to contemporary urban culture and infusing the art form with theatricality and humor. Dorrance and her company perform a new, extended version--co-commissioned by Cal Performances--of her acclaimed work, Myelination, with original live music; the rarely seen, Bessie-Award winning Three to One; and a revival of the whimsical Jungle Blues, in a program that connects tap back to its roots in jazz and jump blues, and forward to the cadences of hip-hop and indie rock. "Dorrance... pushes the boundaries of tap while exposing its true nature: that it is music" (The New York Times).
