Twyla Tharp Dance

Fri, Feb 1, 2002 8 PM

"Nonstop energetic intricacy."--New York Times

Be there when Twyla Tharp returns with an all-new company of superlative dancers drawn from American Ballet Theatre, New York City Ballet, and the Joffrey Ballet.

Tharp's new work for this first-rate ensemble has wowed crowds with high-powered dance virtuosity that rivals In the Upper Room and her other classics. Whether she chooses Mozart or modern sounds to spark her dance ideas, Tharp's clever, artful choreography displays trademark wit alongside bravura athleticism.

This American dance icon has been a local favorite since a series of residencies at the Wexner Center first gave Columbus audiences the chance to see her work up close, and Tharp's appearances have always been important dates on our dance season calendar. DonÌt delay in getting the best seats now for Twyla Tharp!
