    Almost singlehandedly, Savion Glover revived the art of tap-dancing with his unorthodox Broadway smash "Bring in 'da Noise, Bring in 'da Funk." Before that defining success, he was the star pupil of Sammy Davis, Jr. and Gregory Hines, who called Glover "possibly the best tap dancer that ever lived." These legends and others preside in spirit over SoLe Sanctuary, Glover's powerfully elegiac new duet with Marshall Davis, Jr."Barebones and pure, full of . . . rhythmic innovation" (NY Times), SoLe Sanctuary is tightly focused on a bravura whirlwind of original and quoted steps. With fury, grace, and awesome athleticism, Glover embodies 150 years of tap in his lithe body. This rich, tumultuous history weighs heavily on his shoulders but not his feet. At Page Auditorium, tap receives an allusive love letter from its signal genius and most serious advocate.
