Savion Glover's "Stepz"
(Photo credit: Elijah Paul)
Savion Glover talks about his dance company, the legacy of tap dancing, and about “Stepz,” his new show at The Joyce Theater through July 6.
OMG! The best I've seen. I agree with Paulette I wanted to see something about the music. For example, the rendition of Mister Bojangles was so beautiful but I have no idea who recorded it.
“improv-ography”...Sounds like the general historical approach to/ ethic of black dance and music in which a framework and boundaries are set with space left for individual expression.
I love, love, love Savion Glover. He makes me happy. The show at the Joyce now is one of the very best I have seen with the cool Marshall Davis, Jr. and three wonderful women. Savion is transcendent and the choreography some of the best I've seen. I must say, though, that I found the recorded music to be much, much too loud. I actually had to put some tissue in my ears and that's such a shame because, of course, I go to Savion to HEAR the dancing. I miss Andy McCloud with his bass and other jazz musicians. I also would have appreciated something in the program identifying the music. I'll be back next year anyway.
