Talk about tapping to the beat! If ever there were a program that blurred the line between composition and performance, it would be this groundbreaking collaboration between pianist/composer Conrad Tao and tap-dancer/choreographer Caleb Teicher. The two former teenage prodigies have become leaders in shaping the future of their art forms—one as a Lincoln Center Emerging Artist, and the other as Dance Magazine’s “Best Emerging Choreographer.” As Teicher improvises dance to Tao’s breathtaking playing, in a program including everything from selections from J.S. Bach’s Goldberg Variations to original compositions by the pianist, the boundaries between choreography, composition, and genre will fade into the raw, free-spirited energy of artistic expression.
