The Blues Project is a collaboration between Dorrance Dance, led by the extraordinary choreographer Michelle Dorrance, and award-winning musician and composer Toshi Reagon featuring Derick K. Grant and Dormeshia Sumbry-Edwards. The show features some of today’s finest tap artists, whose percussive movement becomes a visual and aural conversation with music performed live by Reagon and a band featuring acoustic and electric guitar, bass, drums, percussion, and violin.
Michelle Dorrance’s dynamic company aims to honor tap dance’s uniquely beautiful history in a new and compelling context, not by stripping the form of its tradition, but by pushing it: rhythmically, aesthetically, and conceptually. She is a 2015 MacArthur Fellow, a 2014 Alpert Award Winner, and a 2013 Jacob’s Pillow Dance Award Winner.
