Inspired by American Tap dancer William Henry Lane (or Master Juba, known as the creator of tap)’s connection with the Metropolitan Cathedral, Hannah Ballard presents a new contemporary tap work on the site where the master performer passed away; the former Brownlow Hill workhouse. Sole Rebel Tap’s unique rhythmic language makes this pop-up performance a fitting tribute to his legacy, which included performances at Liverpool’s Theatre Role and Williamson Square in 1848.
