Conrad Tao and Caleb Teicher: "Counterpoint"
Tuesday, April 30, 2024
7:30 p.m. | The Seabrook Island Club
Counterpoint is a collaboration between pianist and composer Conrad Tao and choreographer and tap dancer Caleb Teicher. The duo explores the dichotomy of their different perspectives and artistic practices, expanding their individual expressive capacity through a collective experience. Harmonic, rhythmic, and theatrical counterpoint between the artists seeks to map out constellations linking their disparate traditions, driving the imagination and opening the heart. The stylistically diverse music of Counterpoint includes the Aria from Bach’s Goldberg Variations, Art Tatum’s demented stride piano, Arnold Schoenberg’s ironic take on the Viennese waltz, a delicate miniature from Tao and Teicher's More Forever, and threading it all together, a work that bridges traditions, approaches, and styles—Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue. Tao and Teicher’s earlier work, More Forever, is a Bessie Award-winning New York Times critic’s pick, which was lauded for “constantly extending the sonic aspects of dance.”
