Created and choreographed by Australian actor, dancer and choreographer Dein Perry, Tap Dogs’ unprecedented trademark blend of live music and energetic tap dance is indisputably a global smash hit.
Tap Dogs is set on a construction site in the steelworks town of Newcastle, just north of Sydney, Australia.
Talented tappers Nathan Beech, Nathaniel Hancock, Reid Perry, Richie Miller, Sam Marks, Anthony Russo and Chase Roseillo bring the steelworks alive. Every inanimate object becomes a tap dancing platform as the performers ricochet off scaffolding and boisterously stamp and slide through water.
Together, they have over 50 years’ experience dancing as part of Tap Dogs. Their collective accolades including a performance at the World Masters Games Opening Ceremony (Perry) and an appearance in the animated musical film Happy Feet 2 (Hancock).
The seven dancers are joined onstage by percussionists Catarina Percinio and Noriko Terada, who amplify the rock-gig ambience while the tappers move to the groove of their own beat.
Tap Dogs will be leaving dents all over the stage of Sadler’s Wells’ West End venue, The Peacock, for three weeks in this long-awaited return to the UK. We expect the production to keep audiences thoroughly entertained until the final tap.
