The beat of their tapping feet has reverberated around the world for 15 years, and now Australia’s TAP DOGS is returning home for a strictly limited season.
TAP DOGS, the internationally acclaimed dance sensation which has won 11 major international awards, created by Olivier Award winning choreographer Dein Perry, will set summer temperatures soaring from 5 January 2011 in a five-week season at Sydney’s Capitol Theatre. TAP DOGS is designed and directed by Nigel Triffitt.
It will also mark the return of Australia’s International film and theatre star Adam Garcia to the Sydney stage leading the TAP DOGS troupe.
The global dance phenomenon of TAP DOGS combines the strength and power of workmen with the precision and talent of tap dancing, and has been seen by over 11 million people worldwide and performed in 330 cities, and 37 countries across the globe. The 2010 West End season opens in London on 15 June.
Dein Perry directed Garcia in the lead role of his debut film Bootmen, a film inspired by Perry’s experiences of growing up in the Australian industrial city of Newcastle where TAP DOGS was conceived. Garcia will feature in the London season of TAP DOGS before returning to perform in Australia. He previously danced with TAP DOGS in the Opening Ceremony of the 2000 Sydney Olympic Games.
The January season of TAP DOGS will mark the first time the show has played in the Harbour City since 2005. It will be TAP DOGS only Australian engagement for 2011, and is certain to become one the hottest tickets of the summer.
