What Moves You featuring Lil Buck and Mihai Marica lil-buck-500x558
with special guest Jon Boogz
Nov 11 | 7:30 pm | $38 & $48

Lil Buck has become an international sensation with his spectacular style of
street dance, “Memphis jookin,” appearing on high-profile commercials from
Apple Airpods to Lexus and live performances on Steven Colbert and the
Superbowl with Madonna. With his fluid, twisting and jaw-dropping angular moves, Lil Buck comes to TCA with cellist Mihai Marica and special guest movement
artist Jon Boogz to challenge the boundaries of what their respective instruments—the body and the cello—can do.

Thank you to Tempe Camera for supporting TCA and making the arts accessible to students.

Flor de Toloache
Feb 3 | 7:30 pm | $28 & $38

Edgy, versatile and fresh, the all-female Mariachi Flor de Toloache continually pushes the boundaries of Mexican music, melding the traditional with the
modern.  Their collaboration with rock super-group The Arcs (led by Black
Key’s front man Dan Auerbach), and an appearance at last year’s Coachella Festival has revolutionized mariachi music. Not unlike the Toloache, the
legendary flower still used in Mexico as a love potion, the group casts a spell over audiences with their intoxicating live show.


Voice Play png

Feb 9 | 7:30 pm | $35 & $45

VoicePlay’s amazing, humorous, and vertigo-inducing harmonies recreate the orchestrated sound of an entire musical production with nothing but the human voice. What began, quite literally, as a street corner act has since become one of the most riveting theatrical experiences on stage today.

Mar 3 | 7:30 pm | $35 & $45

Rhythmic Circus bursts onto the TCA stage with an effervescent troupe of
artists, musicians, and outrageously talented dancers. “Heatbox” the human
beatbox joins the swingin’ seven-piece funk band to accompany each tap,
shuffle, and stomp as this dancing circus blows audiences away with their
rapid fire moves and high energy fun.

williams pngWilliamsburg Salsa Orchestra
Mar 30 | 7:30 pm | $25 & $35

Bringing the attitude of a rock band, and the grooves of classic New York salsa, this group transforms favorite indie tunes into astonishing salsa anthems, taking the music in new directions with love and respect for the tradition. The Williamsburg Salsa Orchestra takes the art of salsa music to a whole new level with their stunning 11-piece band, and has become a groundbreaking global voice that is “an unstoppable weapon for the dance floor.” – (Vibrations Magazine)


che malambo png

Che Malambo
Apr 7 | 8:00 pm | $35 & $45

Razor sharp precision footwork, rhythmic stomping and pounding drums are at the heart of the South American gaucho tradition in this thrilling spectacle of
music and dance. Malambo began in 17th century Argentina as a dueling
display of agility, strength, dexterity and zapateo – the fast paced footwork
inspired by the rhythm of galloping horses. With their whirling boleadoras
(stones attached to lassoes), the fiery malambo traditions burst onto the stage at Tempe Center for the Arts.
