Tap Hop! is a fascinating show with tap dancer Marije Nie. In this show, tap dance is approached from a 21st century angle: live computer music.
In a couple of pieces, use is made of an interactive system in which the computers are directed by the tap dancer. Further, surreal arrangements are made of jazz classics by Fats Waller, Duke Ellington and Slim Gaillard. The unique contribution of tap dancer Marije Nie makes a direct link with the past, but the interaction with electronics places the music in the world of today. The addition of trombone player Joseph Bowie, Grand Master of the funk, guarantees brilliant solo's and a very energetic show.
live electronics, improvisation, jazz, visual effects, noise, funk, energy!
