This unusual evening begins with an “unsilent” auction of original visual art work and sonic performances inspired by the sole tool of Tap Dance, the Tap Shoe. Included are Kenyan tastes for your palette, a cash bar and an Afro-pop, dance and projection party.

Much more information is available at the Facebook page of They Dance for Rain and Stefanie Weber’s website, “Fertile Universe,” where you can bid on the visual art featured until October 24 at 8:45 p.m.

 

Cannot make it to the 24th but want to be there in spirit to support? Soft Shoe Boom! accepts donations for in-spirit attendance as well. They’ll take a moment to honor our in-spirit attendees during the event. Go here to make a contribution.
