Tap Factory is an international hit-show featuring urban tap dance, percussion, comedy and acrobatics and it’s at Cardiff’s New Theatre for one performance only tonight (Saturday October 28) at 7.30pm.
The live music and choreography is created from the most ordinary of objects by a highly talented, internationally renowned cast of award-winning tap dancers. On stage the show features; 4 pairs of tap shoes, 12 oil barrels, 1 stepladder, 4 trash bins, 1 bucket, 1 toolbox, 1 broom, 12 cans, 4 wood mallets and eight handsome men in a unique blend of dance, percussion, comedy and cirque style acrobatics.
Tap Factory was created by choreographer and Artistic Director Vincent Pausanias, who wanted to create a show that would showcase the magic of rhythm at its highest possible technical level. Using his large experience as a director of many different shows, and working with Gilles Guenat, World Champion of Tap (elite category) and Jérémie Champagne, finalist of So You Think You Can Dance, France, Vincent combined urban percussion, acrobatics, hip hop and comedy within a tap dance framework, placing them in a contemporary urban setting to create an amazing dance spectacular and cirque experience.
Performed by some of the world’s best tap dancers and international musicians, the result is a highly visual, exciting show full of high-energy dance, explosive percussion and unbelievable acrobatics, all wrapped up in a fun-filled evening.
