Why see Twyla Tharp Dance?

The iconic iconoclast

Multi-award winning Twyla Tharp is known in the world of dance as a visionary and innovative choreographer, now she returns with a new program that displays her hallmarks of humour, generous spirit and zeal, tied together with immaculate techniques and decades of experience from this pure iconoclast.

From movies to television, Broadway and so much more, Tharp has made an indelible mark on dance in both the 20th and 21st centuries. Her 1973 piece Deuce Coupe set to the music of The Beach Boys, is still considered the first crossover ballet and continues to draw audiences the world over. She still works on with pop music, and has created ballets to the music of Frank Sinatra, David Byrne, Bob Dylan and more.
