Inspired by Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition, Tac-au-Tac dancers present Dances at an Exhibition, a programme of dances inspired by art works from an imaginary art gallery.  They are joined on Saturday night by friends of Tac-au-Tac, notably Oxford Youth Dance Company.

Tac-au-Tac was founded in 1999. It is a professional contemporary dance company based in Oxford and directed by Joëlle Pappas. Tac-au-Tac dancers collaborate with musicians, artists and film makers to create shows performed locally and abroad. Tac-au-Tac runs extensive education and community programmes. (more…)
