Juilliard Dance presents its annual series of notable repertory works. For the 2014 edition, Juilliard alumnus Lar Lubovitch’s Concerto Six Twenty-Two (1986) highlights the beautiful Mozart score and Lubovitch’s own spirited sense of lyricism; Twyla Tharp’s finely calibrated classic Baker’s Dozen (1979) plays with multiples of twelve: six duets, three quartets, two sextets, and twelve solos; and Eliot Feld’s The Jig Is Up (1984) portrays an energetic, virtuosic abstraction of folk dances set to Celtic folk tunes
