Australia's biggest international hit, Dein Perry's TAP DOGS, returns to Australia after storming the world with their unique brand of electrifying entertainment. A global dance phenomenon, TAP DOGS has won over 11 major international awards, been seen by over 12 million people and exhilarated audiences worldwide. And now, they're back in Australia to energise audiences with an explosion of dance.
With a show that is part theatre, part rock concert and part construction site, the dynamic cast of dancers and musicians inject raw power and passion into the ultimate visual stage show spectacular, bringing the steel works to life in a fast-paced, unstoppable display that everybody will enjoy.
The global sensation has returned home having toured throughout the world with performances in over 330 cities, across 37 countries, on six continents. Tap Dogs promises to deliver a show fit for the whole family with an awe inspiring mix of dance, music and performance in a full-scale stage show production.
Created by Dein Perry, Tap Dogs is an 80 minute show combining the strength and power of workmen with the precision and talent of tap dancing. Whether they are in water, upside-down or jumping through scaffolding, the Tap Dogs have been performing to the beat of their own drum since their world premiere at the Sydney Theatre Festival in January 1995. Major milestones for Tap Dogs include an Oliver Award-winning six month run on London's prestigious Shaftesbury Avenue, conquering New York and America, and winning over 15 international awards for the show's creators Dein Perry (choreographer), Nigel Triffitt (designer/director) and Andrew Wilkie (composer) including a Pegasus Award at the Spoleto Festival in Italy and an Obie in New York. The story of the Tap Dogs has even been immortalised by Hollywood in the movie BOOTMEN.
And today - TAP DOGS continues to take the world by storm! The story continues...!
