Ephemeral Artifacts

An Anandam Dancetheatre Production in association with Theatre Passe Muraille

Ephemeral Artifacts confronts the clichés associated with tap dance, exposing the racialized history that continues to affect us today. Exploring the indelible connection of jazz, and tap carried through Black bodies, Travis Knights draws us in with his signature style and challenges the status quo.
