DORRANCE DANCE: THE BLUES PROJECT
Williamstown, 8 p.m.
The Blues Project is a collaboration between Dorrance Dance, led by the extraordinary choreographer Michelle Dorrance, and award-winning musician and composer Toshi Reagon. 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. Price is $10/$3 for students.   Visit the Williams College '62 Center Box Office from Tues-Sat, 1-5 PM or call (413) 597-2425.
