Dorrance Dance Plays the Pillow | July 1⁠—5

World Premiere

Celebrate July 4th week with a uniquely American dance form—a tap takeover with dance and live music from Michelle Dorrance, Nicholas Van Young, and the remarkable dancers and musicians of Dorrance Dance, with plenty of special guests.

Ted Shawn Theatre

Featuring a world premiere solo for Michelle Dorrance set alongside one of her most beloved rhythmic compositions, SOUNDspace, this program is framed by world premieres set on the company by living tap legends—and may even include some of the masters themselves!

Doris Duke Theatre

This singular in-the-round experience blends the site-specific collaborations of Michelle Dorrance and Nicholas Van Young into a seamless work adapted specifically for the Pillow. With the unique sonic palettes and compositions featured in Elemental (BAM) and The Rotunda Project (Guggenheim Works and Process), Dorrance, Young, and the members of Dorrance Dance explore the Duke like never before.
