The Performance Lab series presents an action-packed show choreographed by renowned dancer Nicholas Van Young and his dance group, SoundMovement. The group takes us on a journey—exploring the evolution of Man and the Machine by pushing the boundaries of sound, tap and modern dance. SoundMovement consists of an evolving group of rhythmically trained dancers that focus on movement and music as a combined medium. SoundMovement is not defined as a tap, body percussion or music ensemble but looks to explore dance soundscapes and sound design through unique electronic manipulations, audio speakers, and looping.
