THELONIOUS

Thursday, July 9, 2015 (7 & 9:30pm)

The Duke on 42nd Street

229 West 42nd Street (between 7th & 8th Avenues)

Thelonious is Sarah Petronio's personal homage to one of the giants of Jazz piano - Thelonious Monk, referred to in the late '40s as "The High Priest of Bebop". The show unfolds sometime 'round midnight in the intimate ambiance of a Parisian apartment where a group of friends* meet to listen to, dance and interpret some memorable Monk tunes on the local Paris Jazz Radio Station. "Why Monk? Because his identifiable chords, his unique concept of swing, the keen sense of syncopation and space in his music – when to lay out, let somebody else play or just leave it open, was an inspiring influence in my evolution as a jazz tap dancer and choreographer." Sarah Petronio

Tap it Out is a free outdoor public event. It is a contemporary percussion and movement “soundscape” that promotes TAP DANCE as pure music, while consciously deconstructing the basic elements that propel tap forward. Worldwide students of all ages and levels, join to create a chorus of hundreds of tapping feet.
