“Oasis” opens with a tinkly waltz and projections of Disney-esque water drops splashing against Kingsbury’s decor —— which includes a series of wavy tubular forms made of a stringlike material and suspended from above. As three women dancers emerge backwards from the shadows, the music turns spectral. The costumes are elegantly decorated in geometric patterns, but — like the sculptural forms, video projections and lightning flashes — they don’t add up. In fact, as the dance unfolds against these confusing elements, it’s the big, lush score that steals the thunder.
