Sean Curran Company : The irreverent, eclectic, immensely talented hometown boy returns with a world premiere for his company, “Social Discourse.” With a performing career that’s taken him from Irish step dancing to Bill T. Jones to “STOMP” to New York City Opera, Curran has developed a distinctly offbeat choreographic style that’s always engaging and often -- as in his wickedly satirical reworking of 'Pulcinella' and his 'Aria,' which combines recorded apologies with Handel arias -- quite provocative. It’s a coup for his troupe to be on the Celebrity Series of Boston’s main subscription docket with the likes of Paul Taylor and Alvin Ailey. Oct. 26-28, Tsai Performance Center. 617-482-6661 , celebrityseries.org -- KAREN CAMPBELL
