When choreographers with different styles get together, the result can be as entertaining as it is intriguing. That's the impetus behind GONZO!, shared by Oakland's much-admired Savage Jazz Dance Company and Napoles Ballet, a young San Francisco contemporary ballet company founded by Cuban choreographer Luis Napoles. Both he and Reginald Ray-Savage are ambitious, prolific, and constantly seeking new directions in dance. For this show, the two choreographers put together a smorgasbord of premieres and repertory pieces with something for everyone to discover: Napoles's Lecuona, set in 1930s Cuba; abstract Retazos; narrative Fausto; and Savage works danced to Max Roach, John Coltrane, Alarm Will Sound, and Stravinsky. All that and more is on the bill when GONZO! comes to Malonga Casquelourd Center for the Arts (1428 Alice St., Oakland) Thursday through Saturday, May 12-14. 8 p.m., $5-$25. 1-800-838-3006 or
