SOUNDspace (2013)

Originally a site-specific work that explored the unique acoustics of New York City’s St. Mark’s Church through the myriad sounds and textures of the feet, SOUNDspace has been adapted and continues to explore what is most beautiful and exceptional about tap dancing — movement as music.

Choreography by Michelle Dorrance
Original Music by Gregory Richardson

The creation of SOUNDspace was made possible, in part, by the Danspace Project 2012-2013 Commissioning Initiative, with support from the New York State Council on the Arts. As part of Danspace Project’s Choreographic Center Without Walls, Dorrance received a production residency supported by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
