Kenneth Sherman’s Tap Tap Tap may sound like it is about dance, but you’d only be half right. It does have dance, but it goes way beyond as it parodies U.S. Republican Senator Larry Craig’s airport bathroom sex scandal.
“[It is] styled in part as a 1930’s Busby Berkeley film featuring an all-male cast of dancers. There’s a fun visual element to the film,” says Sherman by email. “This will be the first public screening of the project so we’re all super excited to see it with a live audience.”
The award-winning Sherman has been making dance films since 2006, including his first film Auto Erotica which was nominated for a prize at Cannes, as well as a range of experimental and dramatic works in film, video and installations.
“My first involvement with Out on Screen was back in 1992 when I was working for them as a programming assistant,” he says. “It’s surprising to see they’re now at their 25th anniversary mark and I’m happy to be involved with the celebration. They’re a great organization and the Coast is Queer program is always a great time to see all the local filmmakers and friends that come out for it.”
