Twyla Tharp has changed the face of American Dance. At 74, Tharp is still doing what she loves to do: Create.
Twyla Tharp and her company of dancers will be in residence at the Catskill Mountain Foundation’s Orpheum Film and Performing Arts Center in Tannersville creating and rehearsing new work and engaging the local community in outreach activities.
This showcase performance includes reconstruction of two earlier works, COUNTRY DANCES from 1976 and BRAHMS PAGANINI from 1980, as well as premieres a new work set to Beethoven’s Opus 130 and 133.
