Tap dancing show comes to the Theatre Royal


See the sound. Feel the movement.

Old Kent Road Tap present Fall Out, a journey through quintessential jazz, entangling movement within the graceful perspective of tap dance. Conversations of question and answer between soloists of the band and the performers expose emotions and trigger manoeuvres back and forth between each art form on stage at the Theatre Royal, in Bury St Edmunds, on Thursday, February 15.

Led by a live musical force, the show takes an experimental ride attempting to understand the journey of falling out of love. The fervent dancers find ways to uncover their passion, love for, and raw relationship with tap dance using a sparse set up of wooden boards concealing how love can never be defined. Fall Out pushes the boundaries of strength and intensity through the bare sounds of music and dance, articulated through complex rhythms and spectacularly technical performance.

Old Kent Road was founded by artistic director Avalon Rathgeb in 2014, aiming to gather the very best tap dancers and musicians which have inspired her journey, to create unique passionate tap choreography, bigger and better than the sum of its parts. A passionate group of tap dancers who together are raising the game on the UK tap dance scene, they work to bring their expertise to the British public, working together to develop their distinctive choreography, paying homage to history and jazz culture along the way.
