Curated by Rashida Bumbray
Produced by Divine Rhythm Productions and Dulé Hill
In less than a decade, Emmy award-winning choreographer and hoofer Jason Samuels Smith has emerged as a leader in the tap dance world. For the New York premiere of his new dance work, Charlie's Angels, he considers the complex intersections between inspiration, re-interpretation, and creative process, using Charlie Parker's revolutionary harmonic ideas and tonal vocabulary as a point of departure. Revisiting Parker's early influential recordings, Samuels Smith relates them to the history of tap dance, as well as to his personal development as a choreographer.

Developed in collaboration with and performed by three of the most innovative women tap dancers in the world, Chloe Arnold, Michelle Dorrance, and Dormeshia Sumbry-Edwards, and also featuring Samuels Smith, the piece recontextualizes Parker's music in the present moment. Samuels Smith takes us on a ride through fast tempos, virtuosic technique, and improvisation based on the harmonic structure that has become the legacy of bebop music.
