I was at the Savion Glover show at Cal Performances last night and found it–no surprise–mostly brilliant; the review will be in Monday’s Chronicle. In the meantime, just a reminder that David Dorfman Dance is also at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts this weekend; I’ll be there Sunday. Dorfman’s rare visit to San Francisco in 2005 was one of the highlights of that dance year for me; He achieves a real interplay between text and movement that many “talky” choreographers don’t, and he’s challenging and funny all at once. The subject of his latest, “Underground” sounds a little dicey to me–it uses the 1969 activists the Weathermen as a launching point for exploring the line between political agitation and terrorism. But it’s hard to imagine Dorfman getting preachy or heavy-handed, so I’ll happily take my chances. Unfortunately, the Chronicle’s not covering the show, but Allan Ulrich should soon have a review up on Voice of Dance.
look forward to the savion review….i haven’t seen him perform in about 6 or 7 years. tragic.
