“One of the brightest lights in tap today” (The New Yorker) Caleb Teicher and innovative pianist and composer Conrad Tao collaborated in More Forever, a new evening-length work. On a stage filled with a thin layer of sand, dancers explored American dance forms such as tap, vernacular jazz, and Lindy Hop, set to Tao’s new contemporary score for piano and electronics.
Led by Dance Magazine’s “Best Emerging Choreographer,” Caleb Teicher & Company is known for a unique style of theatricality, humor, emotional expression, and aesthetic exploration. Performing live, Tao is a Lincoln Center Emerging Artist regarded as “shaping the future of classical music” (New York Magazine). This highly-anticipated ensemble work was developed in part at the Pillow Lab. Read more in the program and PillowNotes.
