RISING TO THE TAP

JULY 4-6

THE FLYING CARPET THEATRE  in partnership with THEATRICAL OUTFIT presents Rising To The Tap – tap virtuoso Andrew Nemr’s breathtaking solo show.   Audiences journey through the dramatic departure of Andrew’s parents from war-torn Lebanon, to his victimization at the hands of bullies during his childhood in New Jersey, to his eventual mentorship under legendary tap greats Jimmy Slyde, Savion Glover and Gregory Hines leading to a radical new understanding of himself and his own racial identity.

Now a TED Fellow with credits that include performances at Lincoln Center, The Kennedy Center, and The Apollo, Andrew uses musically explosive footwork to underscore this ‘feel everything’ tour-de-force disguised as a one-man tap cabaret – TOP 10 Dance Performances of 2017!” – The Huffington Post
