Opening the evening will be Giovanni’s own Frankie G band, with Sam-One from Pittsburg on the guitar, D’Mar on drums, and Kathy Tecjka on piano and vocals. “Hopefully, we’re going to wake up a lot of eardrums and hearts playing some straight-ahead blues,” he said. The highlight of the concert may well be the encore with all three acts on stage together, worth the price of admission alone, as is the theater itself, which Giovanni describes as having “no bad seat in the house,” great interaction between the music and the audience, and creating a venue where the audience is part of the music.

Set to a compilation of György Ligeti’s works for keyboard, the ballet opens as the back curtain liquidly rises to reveal a band of white, while dancers appear from the wings and then disappear, only to emerge to perform a simple walk catch step. Like “Theme,” “Continuum” relies on basic building blocks to create a highly reticulated world as mysterious and unpredictable as the Ligeti compositions. Vanessa Zahorian and Luke Ingham were sensuous and Shiva-like, yet intensely functional, in their pairing. Frances Chung precisely carved arabesques into the air in one of her solos. The couplings of Dores André with Steven Morse, Chung with Joseph Walsh, and Sofiane Sylve with Tiit Helimets highlighted dance as mysterious clockwork motion, and bodies as whirligigs and elegant organisms.
