Savion Glover to Perform Sole Sanctuary at Washington, DC's Warner Theatre
15 Feb 2012
Tony Award winner Savion Glover will bring his evening of dance and music SoLe SANCTUARY: A hoofer’s meditation on the art of tap to Washington, DC's Warner Theatre March 30-31.
Glover previously presented the piece at the Joyce Theatre in June 2011. Joined by Marshall Davis, Jr., Glover will pay tribute to "great tap dancers of the 20th century," including the late of Gregory Hines, with whom he appeared in the movie "Tap."
SoLe SANCTUARY also incorporates "a shrine, a living Buddha in meditation and oversized posters of departed tap legends."
Glover made his Broadway debut in The Tap Dance Kid. He received a Tony Award for Best Choreography for Bring in 'Da Noise, Bring in 'Da Funk, which also brought him a Tony nomination for Best Actor in a Musical. Glover's other Broadway credits include Black and Blue (Tony nomination) and Jelly's Last Jam. His film credits include "Tap" and Spike Lee's "Bamboozled." He also served as tap choreographer for the animated film "Happy Feet."
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
