Tap Factory

Tuesday, October 3, 2017

TAP FACTORY is a fun, rhythm-based theatre show showcasing urban tap dance and percussion, comedy and acrobatics. 

Creator and director Vincent Pausanias built an entertaining show around three ideas : exciting rhythms, high performances and comedy.

Tap Factory is so much more than a tap show, this is “chalplinesque”, pure pleasure and positive energy. It’s packed with rhythmic drumming and percussive sounds created from the most ordinary of objects by a highly talented cast.

On stage, the performers will utilize four pair of tap shoes, 12 oil barrels, one stepladder, four trash bins, one bucket, one toolbox, two brooms, 12 cans, wood mallets and eight handsome men!

A worker arrives in a factory for his first day of work and the magic begins. It takes you throughout the show and leaves you filled with strong, positive energy. It is fun, astonishing, powerful, poetic and sexy!
