Michael J Love: The Debut Full-Length Work

Premieres April 2017 in Austin

We've completed the Indiegogo campaign.


premieres April 21-22, 2017. Get tickets here!

In April 2017, dancer-choreographer-educator Michael J Love will present his debut full-length work. The multi-disciplinary collection of pieces explores and jubilantly celebrates the components of a unique, oft-marginalized black identity—examining race, orientation, and gender and their intersections. The work will stand as a testament of self-love and action of self-care in a social-political climate that has become increasingly onerous following the 2016 presidential election. As Michael himself says, "It's a chance for me to be happy about who I am."

Michael will be presenting his debut work as one half of a shared evening—soon to come are exciting details about the additional project he is developing alongside a special group of exceptional rhythm tap dance artists! 


Michael is currently seeking financial support in covering all associated production costs, including venue and equipment rental, production crew and cast, and marketing and promotion. Donations do not only support this production, but also an emerging voice in American rhythm tap dance and the continued presentation of works that explore social and identity politics with an intersectional pro-black, pro-lgbtq, feminist focus.
