RETURN OF TAP DOGS (article first published : 2003-02-21)

Big Concerts in association with e-TV is proud to announce the return of the internationally acclaimed TAP Dogs that took the world, and South Africa, by storm! After performing to over 50 sold out shows countrywide, the rubber wielding line-up of macho Australians are coming back in June 2003. (See review in Dance Archives)

Tap Dogs is an interactive experience, with the six-man dance troupe reinventing styles and bonding with the audience. A spell binding show with exuberance, energy and enthusiasm. They are perfectly percussive and electrically energizing.

The winner of 11 International awards, TAP Dogs is choreographed by distinguished two-time Olivier Award-winning choreographer Dein Perry, and the high-speed industrial tap is performed on a broken slanted stage comprising of scaffolding, ladders and ropes designed uniquely by director Nigel Triffit. The sound was composed by Andrew Wilkie and is mostly driven by the diverse rhythms of sharp crisp tapping. It features an eclectic range of music including hip-hop, funk, techno and even heavy metal audio accompany.

TAP Dogs will appear in association with East Coast Radio in the Playhouse Opera from from July 28 to August 2. Ticket prices– R105 to R180 exclusive of Computicket service charges Book at Computicket or call 083 915 8000 or visit www.computicket.com
