On Bathsheba Dance Company:
Not Really Gaga for This Program
OHAD Naharin is taken by nonsense, but he didn't take us along for the ride. Naharin, artistic director of Israel's Batsheva Dance Company, developed his own movement style, which he calls Gaga.
In "Max," which opened Wednesday, he played with ideas like a cat with a pipe cleaner and abandoned them just as quickly.

On Savion Glover:
Tap into Glover's Talent
His show, "SoLo in Time," was an extended riff, nonstop tap almost from beginning to end, set on a nearly bare stage.
He worked with two backup tappers, Marshall Davis Jr. and 19-year-old Cartier A. Williams, both of whom are just as able to take front and center. Unfortunately, the murky sound system made them sound as if they were at the bottom of a well.
