About the Artist

Talk about tapping to the beat! If ever there were a program that blurred the line between composition and performance, it would be this groundbreaking collaboration between pianist/composer Conrad Tao and tap-dancer/choreographer Caleb Teicher. The two former teenage prodigies have become leaders in shaping the future of their art forms—one as a Lincoln Center Emerging Artist, and the other as Dance Magazine’s “Best Emerging Choreographer.” As Teicher improvises dance to Tao’s breathtaking playing, in a program including everything from selections from J.S. Bach’s "Goldberg" Variations to original compositions by the pianist, the boundaries between choreography, composition, and genre will fade into the raw, free-spirited energy of artistic expression.

“Teicher slaps the pallets with lightning speed, leaping from one to the other for contrast, matching Tao, note for accelerated note. The swirl of the music finally spins him off his platform back to solid ground, to a world where creative souls dream about what else can be done with the sturdy, transformative music of Bach.”
