The Joyce Theater

Twyla Tharp, one of the century’s most treasured artists, celebrates fifty years of dance making with an evening of all new work. The double bill of premieres begins with a vibrant introductory FANFARE followed by PRELUDES AND FUGUES, set to J.S. Bach’s The Well-Tempered Clavier. The dance radiates with Tharp’s generous spirit, humanity, and rigor. The evening’s final dance, YOWZIE, is a humorous work set to a wild, raucous, and jazzy score. With immaculate technique and joy, Tharp’s hand chosen and meticulously rehearsed group brings her choreography to life. In each premiere, Tharp turns her decades of experience—dances for Hollywood films, television, and the Broadway stage, ballets, modern dances—into living proof that time is her partner as she continues to deepen and expand her singular imagination.

Performances take place at the David H. Koch Theater, Lincoln Center.
