Ayodele Casel Returns to the Joyce With ‘Chasing Magic



Trailblazing tap dancer Ayodele Casel captures the spark of connection and creation in Chasing Magic, performed live on stage for the first time since its virtual premiere. Exploring the magic of tap dance and everyday life with an ensemble of dancers and musicians, this joyous production celebrates gratitude, friendship, trust, legacy, culture, ancestors, and collaboration. Ayodele Casel captures the spark of connection and creation in her latest work, Chasing Magic. Directed by Torya Beard, a long-time collaborator and Creative Director for Casel’s 2019 unanimously-praised Joyce debut, Chasing Magic explores the magic of both tap dance and daily life. Welcoming old and new musical collaborators into the mix, Chasing Magic is “a celebratory display of artistic encounters: How, after a lost year, they remain right where you left them.” Returning to The Joyce for in-person performances after a successful virtual run, the work features performances by acclaimed jazz musician Arturo O'Farrill, singer/songwriter Crystal Monee Hall, percussionist Keisel Jimenez, pianist Anibal César Cruz, and tap artists Jared Alexander, Amanda Castro, Naomi Funaki, Quynn Johnson,Sean Kaminski, and Dre Torres.
