In partnership with allgo, tap dance artist Michael J. Love presents an evening of virtual programming—a look back at his early-pandemic performance project, “LIVE From The BEATBOX.” Love revisits collaborations with Austin-based Black and queer artists and engages in conversation with mentors to reflect on some of his favorite moments from the seven virtual live tap dance performances he presented in late 2020 and early 2021.
