Twyla Tharp Dance Fiftieth Anniversary Tour
To celebrate her 50th anniversary as a choreographer, Twyla Tharp is taking 12 dancers on a national tour to debut a program of new works set to music by Bach, Henry Butler, Steven Bernstein, and John Zorn. This will be the first time since 2002 that Tharp has toured a group of dancers.
Tharp’s dances are known for creativity, wit, and technical precision coupled with a streetwise nonchalance. By combining different forms of movement—such as jazz, ballet, boxing, and inventions of her own making—Ms. Tharp’s work expands the boundaries of ballet and modern dance.
