TapTheYard: Caleb Teicher & Company Meet Ella and Small and Tall
Bessie Award Winner CALEB TEICHER will present two works – Meet Ella and Small and Tall as part of The Yard’s 6th Annual TapTheYard: A Vineyard Festival of Rhythm and Beats. In Meet Ella, Caleb Teicher collaborates with Nathan Bugh to bring new depth to Ella Fitzgerald’s well-known catalogue through jazz dance forms. Caleb and Nathan stretch the boundaries and distill the essence of movement to jazz music. The “small” Macy Sullivan and “tall” Alicia Lundren pair their unlikely measurements with incredible humor and heart, using a mashup of vernacular jazz, tap, modern, and lame acrobatics. Small and Tall proves that when opposites attract, laughter ensues.
