Rhythmic Circus, the Twin Cities’ home-grown troupe of internationally-renowned dancers and musicians, officially celebrates its 10th anniversary this year and The O’Shaughnessy is excited to welcome them back to the stage for a reprise performance of FEET DON’T FAIL ME NOW! at 7:30pm on Friday, May 4. The special return engagement revisits the joyous parade of genre-hopping music, hard-hitting percussive dance, funky costumes and a big brass band that wowed O’Shaughnessy audiences in 2015 and 2017.
Rhythmic Circus, under the Artistic Direction of Ricci Milan and Executive Direction of Nick Bowman, features dancers Nick Bowman, Drew Geck, Galen Higgins, and Ricci Milan. The musicians include guitarist Alex Rossi, beatboxer Aaron Heaton, keys player Cornell Blanchard, drummer Patrick Nelson, bassist Dan Ristrom, saxophonist Peter Vircks and trumpeter Aaron Wiener.
Feet Don’t Fail Me Now! premiered in 2008 at Minneapolis’ Ritz Theatre when Rhythmic Circus dancers and founders joined forces with seven Twin Cities’ heavyweight musicians. Together, they integrated an inventive style of rapid-fire tap with a variety of musical genres to construct a show that presents a wildly creative view into the indomitable power of the human spirit. The show’s brilliance has been marked by rave reviews, sold-out performances around the world and numerous awards, including two SAGE Awards for Outstanding Ensemble and Performance, a Spirit of the Fringe Award (Edinburgh Festival Fringe’s top theatrical award), two Upper Midwest Emmy’s, being named “Best Dance Performance” by Minneapolis’ City Pages and a spot on America’s Got Talent.
