SOLEA is an original cross cultural dance work created by Lynn Dally in collaboration with the dancers and composer Jerry Kalaf. This adventure in rhythm-a-ning was sparked by Dally’s creative life as a tap dancer touring worldwide with the Jazz Tap Ensemble.

SOLEA DVD, supervised by filmmaker John Bishop, includes Premier Performance (LA/NY), preview performance (Highways), lecture demonstration on the making of the piece, rehearsal footage bringing dance and music together, blues solos performed by Liliana de Leon-Torciello and Eko Supriyanto, a photo gallery and artist biographies.

SOLEA was made possible in part by funding received from the Irvine Fellowships in Dance, a program funded by the James Irvine Foundation and administered by Dance/USA. Additional support provided by COLA Fellowship, City of LA Cultural Affairs Dept, and Guggenheim Fellowship in Choreography.
