From Broadway to Hollywood, television, and American Ballet Theatre, Twyla Tharp has done it all. Lately—and lucky for us—she’s been returning to the concert stage with her own troupe of truly stellar dancers, masters of her quicksilver, musical movement. In a program illustrating her unbridled talent and broad artistic range, Tharp presents the world premiere of DYLAN LOVE SONGS, a piece exploring love’s give and take, set to the elegiac music of Bob Dylan. She also brings back two gems from the 1970s: THE FUGUE which derives its rigorous form from Bach’s "The Musical Offering," and THE RAGGEDY DANCES, a quintet set to Joplin, Bolcom, and Mozart.
