Choreographer and Artistic Director Vincent Pausanias wanted to create a show that would showcase the magic of rhythms at its highest possible technical level.
He brought together Gilles Guenat, World Champion of Tap (elite category) and Jérémie Champagne, finalist of So You Think You Can Dance, France. In collaboration with them Pausanias created this marvelously dynamic show known as Tap Factory.
Vincent didn't want to create only a Urban Tap Show, he also used his large experience as a director of many different shows to introduce other disciplines as steel percussions, acrobatics, Hip hop and Comedy , to bring Tap Factory to another dimension.
This fusion between all those amazing artists, part of the bests in their own disciplines and completely polyvalent, creates a unique show where amazing performances, exciting rhythms, energy and poetry are joining together with a great sense of comedy and humor.
This is fast, fun, strong, astonishing and sexy, just pure pleasure.
A factory being a place of creation, fusion, and transformation, it proves the perfect venue to showcase this artistic mix.
This incredibly talented cast exudes pure and positive non-stop energy throughout the show.
Sometimes powerful, sometimes delicate, rhythms of the performance resonate with the audience to the highest degree.
Vincent Pausanias uses tender moments of pure poetry and lightness to counteract the shows powerful percussion and drum beats.
These always charming, sometimes shirtless, talented men imbue their physical talent with a good dose of Chaplinesque humor. They prove it possible to be sexy and silly at the same time.
THEATRICAL VERSION : The full show on tour worldwide since 2014.
OUTDOOR FESTIVALS : Another version with 8 to 12 performers more adapted for outdoor festivals.
CORPORATE EVENTS : We have acquired a large experience in the conception of special events.
After touring all other the world (UK, France, Spain, Portugal, Holland, Germany, Hungary, Switzerland, USA, Columbia and lately China), TAP FACTORY has been on tour in 2017 in Holland, Germany, France, Switzerland and soon in UK.
