Tap Dogs (28 Aug 2012 - 2 Sep 2012)
From 28 Aug 2012 To 02 Sep 2012
Type: Performing Arts
Australia’s very own TAP DOGS first appeared at the Sydney Festival in 1995. The tapping feet of this internationally acclaimed dance sensation has now reverberated around the world in 330 cities; 37 countries, and been seen by more than 11 million people.
Now TAP DOGS are coming home – stronger, faster, louder and more outrageous than ever to tour Australia from July 2012 and will visit Cairns tapping at the Civic Theatre for a strictly limited season from Tuesday 28 August to Sunday 2 September.
Created by Olivier Award winning choreographer Dein Perry, this global dance phenomenon combines the strength and power of workmen with the precision and talent of tap dancing and is part theatre, part dance, part rock concert and positively electrifying.
“sexy, rough-and-ready appeal. These guys can dance anywhere they put their feet
– even upside down.” The Sydney Morning Herald
“Still stomping up a storm. Great stuff” - The Sunday Telegraph
“splendidly done by all” The Australian
The adrenalin pumped touring cast includes the best tap dancers from around the world. Leading the pack is Sheldon Perry (brother of Dein) along with fellow Aussies Matthew Papa, Nathaniel Hancock, Jesse Rasmussen and from the US Anthony Russo and Richard Miller. In addition to the macho line-up, TAP DOGS now has two beautiful female percussionists, Cat Hunter and Lyndsay Evans joining the testosterone fuelled action on stage.
TAP DOGS was originally created and choreographed by Dein Perry and directed and designed by Nigel Triffitt. In the last 15 years TAP DOGS has won 11 major international awards, including an Olivier for Best Choreography.
