In 'Three: Tap Into Topology', Topology works with rhythmic genius/drum-kit soloist, Grant Collins and tap-dance wizard Bill Simpson to create bold new territory in both music and dance. Grant pushes all the artists to the edge of rhythmic possibility, never compromising groove, and Bill dances on the precipice, creating new space with his body and resounding shoes. Three features new original compositions for drums and tap, and Topology’s saxophone, strings and piano. It’s a fearsomely energetic performance that brings together ideas and inventions from 3 distinct genres to generate something both unfamiliar and intoxicating.
Topology are famous for the breadth and depth of their collaborations. The quintet has created stunning new work with Geoffrey Rush, Neil Armfield, the Brodsky Quartet, the Southern Cross Soloists, Terry Riley, TaikOz, the Queensland Ballet, Kate Miller-Heidke, Katie Noonan, the Kransky Sisters, Gerry Connolly, and William Barton, to name a few.
Grant Collins one of a kind custom drum-set is valued at over $75,000 and takes his team two hours to assemble. The drum-set consists of almost eighty pieces with twenty six drums, thirty four cymbals, and eighteen foot pedals.
Bill Simpson is the Artistic Director and choreographer for Red Hot Rhythm, a Gold Coast/Brisbane based dance company that specialises in Tap dance and Irish dance.
