Ephemeral Artifacts

© Damian Siqueiros

Ephemeral Artifacts uses tap dancing and storytelling to explore the histories of tap and jazz, and the connection of these intertwined genres to black bodies. Professional tap dancer Travis Knights draws us in with his signature style, both intimate and intricate, encouraging audiences to listen to the stories, and the bodies, that have been kept alive through dance and oral traditions. The lineage of tap is both a meditation and a metaphor; on rhythm, adaptability, improvisation, and resistance through racialized bodies.

Produced by Theatre Passe Muraille and Anandam Dancetheatre Productions
