About Savion Glover
After wowing audiences at Sadler’s Wells and receiving an Olivier Award nomination last year for his first ever UK performances, the undisputed master of tap makes a much-anticipated return.
After making his Broadway debut at the tender age of 12 alongside Sammy Davis Jr, Glover’s mastery of tap soon saw him shoot to fame. Over the years he has worked on a truly diverse range of projects from pop videos for P Diddy to a film with Spike Lee – not to mention picking up a Tony Award along the way.
Glover’s unique style delivers much more than you might expect from a tap dance performance. Watching him tap out a bass rhythm with one foot and then simultaneously overlay complex riffs with the other is an awe-inspiring display of skill. His new show Bare Soundz once again explores the idea of tap as a percussive instrument, with the dazzling rhythms he hammers out melding seamlessly into the music of the live band.
Exploring jazz, Caribbean beats and a host of other contemporary musical genres, this rare UK appearance also features regular collaborators Marshall Davis Jr and Maurice Chestnut.
