In the years since Savion Glover first exploded onto the stage in “Bring In da Noise, Bring In da Funk,” he has engaged in a relentlessly curious search for new ways to showcase tap dance while stripping it down to its essence. In his latest creation, “SoLo in TiMe,” Glover and company weave together tap song compositions and flamenco tradition in a breathtakingly electric montage of speed, rhythm, and song.
“Like George Balanchine, Glover makes you see and hear things in the music that you might not otherwise be aware of—the rhythmic undercurrents and eddies that too often are muffled in even the most proficient performances, for example. And he makes you listen, really listen, to the dancing.” —Dance Magazine
