Led by award-winning Brazilian dancer/choreographer Leonardo Sandoval and bassist/composer Gregory Richardson, tap dance and live music come together in the acclaimed production I Didn’t Come to Stay which joyously celebrates tap’s Afro-diasporic roots and connections to Afro-Brazilian dance and music.

I Didn’t Come to Stay was commissioned by Works & Process and premiered at the Guggenheim on April 11, 2022.

Casting and repertory are subject to change.
