Savion Glover, the 1996 Tony Award nominee who choreographed the Broadway hit production Bring in da Noise, Bring in da Funk, will perform his new show Savion Glover in Concert during the 51st edition of the Holland Festival in Amsterdam in June 1998.
The 24-year-old American Savion Glover, who the New York Times called 'probably the greatest tap dancer on earth', will perform with his company NYOTS (Not Your Ordinary Tappers), consisting of Ayodele Casel, Omar Edwards, Abron Glover, Jason Samuels and Chance Taylor, with musicians Eli Fountain, Gregory Jones Patience Higgins and Mark Adams. Savion Glover in Conert breaks with the Fred Astaire image of tapdancing and will feature pure dance without any smoke and light effects or moveable plateaus.
Savion Glover in Concert can be seen at the Royal Theater Carri in Amsterdam from June 16 untill June 21 at 20.00, with a matinee on Sunday June 21 at 15.00.
