The legend of one of the American modern-dance pantheon’s leading lights began a new chapter this season at the David H. Koch Theater, where the Paul Taylor Dance Company’s characteristic musicality and joie de vivre flourish under the ornate, gold-paneled ceiling of the Lincoln Center landmark. Each performance assembles a unique program of moves harvested from Taylor’s catalog of 136 dances and 36 strategies for winning at rock, paper, scissors. On March 16, “Gossamer Gallants” first flutters onto the New York stage with the playful insect mimicry that led the New York Times to declare it a “veritable hoot.” Clad in bright green costumes complete with wings and antennae, female dancers assail their male counterparts and pollinate audience members’ corsages with sprightly and sinister seductions to the jovial sounds of The Bartered Bride.
Among the host of other works, “Aureole,” a Taylor classic that debuted 50 years ago, launches a graceful male solo to a baroque Handel soundtrack. A more martial air holds sway in “Company B,” which captures the turbulence and jubilance swirling through the WWII era to the songs of The Andrews Sisters. With balconies that overlook Lincoln Center’s fountain and plaza, the David H. Koch Theater complements the dancers’ lyricism with its own grandeur.
