Thomas Marek

TAP DANCER

„Thomas Marek is a wolf of a dancer. Tall, rangy, feet apart, he gives the floor a resonant thrashing. Don’t think just complex shuffles and brushes; think kicking a stone down the block“ 

The Village Voice / New York 2005

“Working with Thomas Marek was a welcome challenge. He stretched me as an artist and sent me on a journey that continues to this day, to reach deeper.
I’m grateful for being included in the inspiring creation process.”
