Twyla Tharp’s “The Golden Section” is set to music by David Byrne (of the Talking Heads) and emanates pure energy as thirteen dancers in gold costumes sail, soar and tear through the air of glowing light. Paul Taylor’s Company B is a modern dance work set to the recordings of the 1940s group The Andrews Sisters. The piece features such recognizable tunes as “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy” and “Rum and Coca-Cola.”
