Home grown hoofers from Minneapolis hit the road with a trunk full of tap shoes, funky costumes and a big brass band, ready to burst onto the stage with Feet Don’t Fail Me Now!. “Heatbox” the human beatbox, joins the swingin’ seven-piece funk band to accompany each tap, shuffle, and stomp with a clang, riff and refrain. It’s easy to see why the this troupe was a winner of the Edinburgh Festival “Spirit of the Fringe” Award (Edinburgh Festival Fringe’s top theatrical award). In this joyous parade of genre-hopping music and hard-hitting percussive dance, you’ll be jumping out of your seat and dancing to the beat!
Feet Don’t Fail Me Now! premiered in 2008 by Rhythmic Circus, a troupe of internationally renowned artists. Together, they integrated an inventive style of rapid-fire tap with a variety of musical genres to create a show that presents a wildly creative view into the indomitable power of the human spirit. The show’s brilliance has been marked by rave reviews, sold-out engagements and numerous awards, including two SAGE Awards for Outstanding Ensemble and performance and two Upper Midwest Emmy’s.
