Carnival Center for the Performing Arts. From Nov 29th through Dec 2nd, 2007.
Carnival Center for the Performing Arts presents James Devine’s show Tapeire-Driven by Rhythm starring James Devine, the “fastest dancer in the world,” according to Guinness World Book of Records. Clocking in at an astounding 38 taps per second, Devine creates a whole new kind of theatrical experience – a fusion of Irish dance and rhythm tap with a Celtic brogue. James Devine’s Tapeire-Driven by Rhythm will take place at the Carnival Center’s Studio Theater.
Devine’s breakneck tap dancing, combined on stage with hip-hop, jazz and punk interpretations of traditional Celtic music, tribal rhythms, vocals, percussion and video projections, create “one rhythmic spectacle after another.” as described by the Dance Expression, UK. For his Miami debut, Devine is joined on stage by the multiplatinum selling artist Ashley Mac Isaac, the most celebrated Cape Breton fiddler in the world; award-winning composer and electric harpist Phamie Gow; and percussionist Paul Jennings.
James Devine’s Tapeire-Driven by Rhythm has enjoyed very much success and great critical acclaim throughout the world, including a sold-out run at the 2006 Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Devine has performed at the Oscars and toured the world starring in Lord of the Dance and GaelForce.
