Dorrance Dance
2016/2017 UCSB Arts & Lectures
Dorrance Dance
A Bessie Award-winning troupe known for “blasting open our notions of tap,” Dorrance Dance pushes tap dance’s tradition – rhythmically, aesthetically and conceptually. Street, club and experimental dance forms awaken to the furious rhythms of America’s long-standing jazz vernacular in a new, dynamically compelling context. Founder Michelle Dorrance, a MacArthur Fellow, is considered “one of the most imaginative tap choreographers working today” (The New Yorker). This Santa Barbara favorite from the 2014-2015 Dance series returns to perform a new program: SOUNDspace, an exciting work that explores movement as music; and ETM (“electronic tap music”), a nod toward electronic dance music with acoustic and digitally produced sounds.


Tickets may also be available from Arts & Lectures at (805) 893-3535 or https://artsandlectures.sa.ucsb.edu/Index.aspx
Wed 3/8/17 8:00PM The Granada Theatre Dorrance Dance

Compagnie Herve KOUBI
2016/2017 UCSB Arts & Lectures
Compagnie Herve KOUBI
Recognized as one of Europe’s most distinctive choreographers, Hervé Koubi makes his Southern California debut with What the Day Owes to the Night, a highly physical, stunningly fluid work that invokes the complex interwoven threads of his French-Algerian ancestral history. Combining capoeira, urban and contemporary dance with powerful imagery evocative of Orientalist paintings and the stone filigree of Islamic architecture, 12 French-Algerian and African male dancers appear in a striking contrasts of light and dark, skin and textile and whirling yet chiseled movement to reveal a powerful interpretation of an internal quest.
