The Lady Hoofers Tap Ensemble and Usiloquy Dance Designs – Percussive at the Park
June 2 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pmFree
The Lady Hoofers Tap Ensemble and Usiloquy Dance Designs, both Philadelphia-based all-women dance companies will present a split bill program featuring rhythm tap and Indian classical dance Bharatanatyam. These two percussive dance forms are very different, but share a common emphasis on footwork and rhythm. Both are also historically excluded and underrepresented art forms in the US.
The 60-minute performance set will include interspersed performances by both companies, and audience interaction, and will be followed by a talkback with Artistic Directors Kat Echevarria Richter (The Lady Hoofers) and Shaily Dadiala (Usiloquy).
Usiloquy Dance Designs creates traditional and cross-cultural productions of Indian classical dance Bharatanatyam and conducts educational programs.
