H. Lee White Maritime Museum presents the Caravan Stage Company performance of Hacked: The Treasure of the Empire, as part of the Arts on the Waterfront Series.
This live 90-minute performance takes place on a 90-foot tall ship, the Caravan Stage Tall Ship Theatre
and is the contemporary tale set in a futuristic and dystopic world of pirate hacker activists taking on the largest global bank on the planet – the Mammon Corporation, residing in a “house-of-horrors”-esque superstructure.

Michelle Dorrance is one of the brightest stars in contemporary tap dance. A featured choreographer at Jacob’s Pillow for the past two summers, she will re-stage one of her most original and exciting works— SOUNDspace— in SUNY Oswego’s Hewitt Union Ballroom. She’s paid her dues with popular touring shows like STOMP, and now leads her own gifted company. An exciting treat for the eyes and ears!

“Inventive, imaginative take on tap!” —Boston Globe

“Michelle Dorrance is not only a dynamo in tap shoes but a compelling, imaginative choreographer as well. She and her company… performed… works that stretch the boundaries of tap.”
-Karen Campbell, The Boston Globe

“Ms. Dorrance makes full use of tone, timbre, volume, tempo and, of course, rhythm, constructing patterns that lock together thrillingly…The main emotion that “SOUNDspace” produced was excitement: excitement about sounds, and about the development of this talented choreographer, the most promising one in tap right now.”
-Brian Seibert, The New York Times
