Works & Process: Caleb Teicher
Nonchalance, inventive choreography, and genre-bending collaboration are the hallmarks of New York-based tapper Caleb Teicher’s work. Teicher first made waves as a founding member of Michelle Dorrance’s innovative tap dance company, Dorrance Dance. Lauded by the New York Times for his “switchblade feet,” in 2011 Teicher took home a Bessie Award for outstanding individual performance. In 2015, Teicher founded his own troupe, Caleb Teicher & Company. CT & Co blends tap, vernacular jazz, Lindy Hop, and other American dance styles to reflect “a collective conscience within modern American culture.”
Recently, CT & Co were invited to join the Guggenheim’s Works & Process series where they presented excerpts from “More Forever,” a new evening-length work set to premiere at the Guggenheim January 6 & 7, 2019. After the successful showing, we caught up with Caleb to learn a little bit more about “More Forever”—an eclectic piece set to music by Conrad Tao, incorporating sand, soft shoes, and various dance styles to create a rich tapestry of moves, grooves and sounds between him and six dancers.
