In evoking the origins and evolution of the blues, the locally based JazzAntiqua Dance and Music Ensemble, which performed Saturday at the John Anson Ford Amphitheatre, inevitably retraced the same historical path as "Bring in 'Da Noise, Bring in 'Da Funk," but without the brilliant stylistic fusion and sense of focus that made the latter so memorable.

The annual Jazz Dance L.A. showcase revised its sense of mission to incorporate modern dance achievement in a varied, artful program titled "Tribute to Distinguished L.A. Choreographers" Sunday at the Aratani/Japan America Theater. Certainly Lester Horton's intense 1953 character duet "Dedication to Jose Clemente Orozco" could never be classified as jazz dance.

Visitors to Hollywood's John Anson Ford Amphitheatre this summer can take advantage of the facility's new elevator and free non-stacked parking as well as some new or revived programming in the sixth annual Summer Nights at the Ford season. Added to the usual varied bill of local dance and music are three series: Sunday brunch chamber music concerts, Saturday morning storytelling sessions and evening opera and film showcases.

Women have always defined the sexual politics of modern dance, and the four female- directed companies that appeared in the latest edition of "Split: Dance In and Out of L.A." offered a kind of seminar on the subject Saturday at the Alex Theatre in Glendale. Michigan-based choreographer Laurie Eisenhower provided the most dramatic extremes.

A giant projection screen will be suspended between the two towers of the John Anson Ford Amphitheatre for five nights of film screenings this summer, one of the major expansions of the annual Summer Nights at the Ford performance series that runs from mid-June through Labor Day at the outdoor, 1,200-seat Los Angeles County facility in Hollywood. The films to be shown include the jazz-flavored Mel Stuart-David L. Wolper "WattStax" (Aug. 4), sponsored by the International Documentary Assn.

Tye Gillespie forsook the left-brain world of aerospace engineering to pursue a decidedly more artistic path, that of dancer-choreographer. This seemed the wiser choice Saturday when Gillespie soared in a deceptively simple but profound display of body brilliance at Glendale's Alex Theatre. His solo "My Song," one of eight new works presented on the third annual "Celebration of Dance" series, proved the knockout punch in an evening that also had its share of air jabs.

Two new sources will provide information about the John Anson Ford Amphitheatre's "Summer Nights at the Ford" series. On Wednesday, Los Angeles County Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky activated a 30-foot-high electronic billboard on the grounds of the theater, located in Cahuenga Pass near the Hollywood Bowl. The billboard will beam information to motorists on the Hollywood Freeway about the series' fourth season, which runs from June 14 to Sept.
