After two sell-out runs at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, award-winning Catalan company, Tap Olé, make their London debut with their latest production, Tapeando, mixing tap, Spanish guitar and percussion.
Boasting the talents of four tap dancers and four virtuoso musicians, Tap Olé explore the choreographic possibilities of fusing tap dance with Latin, flamenco, jazz and Mediterranean rhythms.
- “Perfect synchronicity… You never want them to stop” THE SCOTSMAN
The high-energy music of Tapeando from Roger Raventós (guitar), Mario Mas (guitar), Paco Weht (bass) and Carlos Cortés (percussion) perfectly complements the speed and skill of acclaimed dancers Guillem Alonso, Roser Font, Laia Molins and Rubén Pérez in a show that will dazzle the whole family.
Tap Olé have performed internationally to glowing reviews and are previous winners of the Audience Award at the International Valladolid Festival in Spain.
Tap Olé is part of this season’s focus on Catalan dance.
