Tapestry Dance Company presents Sound & Silence – The Rhythm of Life, October 18 – 21 in Rollins Studio Theatre.

Tapestry Dance Company, the world’s only full-time, professional repertory tap dance company in the world premieres an evening of tap dance to astound the eyes and ears with “Sound & Silence.” Presenting some of the best world-class tap dancers right here in Austin, TX, the company will present an evening of “sound wonder.” Utilizing the relationship between silence and sound, the company will experiment with the textures, emotion, and reactions of the sounds of our everyday lives as well as the unspoken relationships we have with each other. Utilizing a palette of diverse music and play, this is tap dance at its finest and most daring.
