Savion Glover “OM”

What I saw last night. Savion Glover at the Joyce Theater. IMG_4402At the start the front of the curtain is lined with votives. Before the show starts a jazz track is played in its entirety. The curtain rise on a stage with hundreds of candles a few small stages and photos of entertainers from the past. Two women sit on either side of the stage and meditate while some other girls just sit there. Savion taps for over 90 minutes to mostly chants and drones but also the occasional blues. At the end there is a gong and Coltrane starts to play as the curtain falls.

Elements: votive candles, statues, photos, chanting, meditators
