Gus Giordano’s jazz-based company celebrates the big five-oh with two nights of full-company pieces and a high-octane premiere by artistic associate Autumn Eckman. Eckman’s new work is entitled “G-Force”—expect some seriously accelerating bodies in motion—and is set to a bumping electronica score. The rest of the program covers more than three decades of work, including Gus’ 1978 solo “Wings” performed this weekend by Eckman. Joyful, energetic, crowd-pleasing dances dominate the evening: there’s Emmy winner Mia Michaels’ sharp, cool and seductive “Le Grand Futur is Here!,” Eckman’s 2012 “JOLT” with a rhythmic score played on pots, pans and spoons, and a smoking hot Latin ballroom sampler by Del Dominguez that incorporates cha-cha, bolero, rumba and samba.
