Chicago Tap Theatre

June 30 - July 16
Stage 773 - 1225 W. Belmont, Chicago, IL

Chicago Tap Theatre is excited to re-imagine one of their most acclaimed story shows, Changes, for Chicago audiences. From the creative team behind Time Steps (chosen as a top dance event of 2016 by the Chicago Sun Times, Dance Magazine, and See Chicago Dance) comes this science fiction tale of aliens, fame-hungry despots and the power of Bowie featuring all-new arrangements by Kurt Schweitz and tap dance by Chicago Tap Theatre. In Changes, Poetry Slam creator Marc Kelly Smith develops an all new narrative of a lonely spaceship operator regaling his on-board computer with a tale of a planet inhabited by peace-loving aliens, and the events that unfold when they encounter both a power-hungry species from another world and a potential hero with his trusty sidekick.

Darrah Carr Dance

Bessie award-nominated Darrah Carr Dance unites with "Irish-American Jazz Powerhouse" (Irish CentralTara O'Grady and her Black Velvet Band for Celtic Jazz Tryst-a delightful fusion of swing dance, tap rhythms, and Irish dance steps set to OGrady's jaunty sound spanning Celtic, folk, funk, blues, jazz, and swing. The exuberant show features a cast of championship Irish dancers including Trent Kowalik, the original star of Broadway's Billy Elliot, and Timothy Kochka, two-time winner of the Word Irish Dancing Championships and seven-year member of Riverdance. As a special highlight of the full program, guest choreographer Seán Curran evokes the romance and charm of the Big Band Era with his whimsical piece On the Six.

"Critic's Choice....undeniable sensuality....I thought my heart would fly out of my chest when the six dancers performed Timo Lozano's RITMOS DEL FLAMENCO" --Laura Molzahn, Chicago Reader
