Chicago Tap Theatre, recently recognized in "Best Dance Events of 2016" listings by the Chicago Tribune, Chicago Sun-Times, Windy City Times, Dance Magazine, and See Chicago Dance, returns to the Athenaeum Mainstage with their signature blend of tap dance and live music, this time with international guests! A true melding of cultures and rhythms, Liaison proves that tap dance is a medium that transcends language.
This is a rare opportunity to see CTT's sister companies, Tapage (Toulouse, France) and Tap Olé (Barcelona, Spain). The last time they were in Chicago, four years ago, Tap Olé's sand dance brought down the house and the Tribune sad of Tapage; "envision the well-crafted fusion that would result if Marcel Marceau and Martha Graham created a tap company." We are excited for the opportunity to share these companies with you again alongside the best of Chicago Tap Theatre!
