Savion Glover’s SoLe Sanctuary
Master tap dancer Savion Glover pays homage to the greats of the genre in his high-concept extravaganza, SoLe Sanctury. "Every production I do is a tribute to them who paved the way," said the artist to the [Boston Globe](http://gr.pn/19wd98g) earlier this year, adding, "but this one speaks directly to that." Portraits of Jimmy Slyde, Lon Chaney, Gregory Hines, and Sammy Davis Jr. hang above the stage while Glover performs both solo and with his longtime collaborator Marshall Davis Jr. Yet the show reaches beyond tap history as well, incorporating elements of science-fiction and dance moves from ballet, hip-hop, and flower-seeking honeybees.

During these nights, the space takes on a cozy nightclub ambiance thanks to candlelit tables and a variety of acts, from acclaimed pianists to improv troupes.
