Twyla Tharp: Minimalism and Me
  • The MCA presents Twyla Tharp, one of this century’s most celebrated artists, for an original program in which Tharp explores her works from 1965 to 1970. Minimalism and Me features Tharp’s recollections about the era that focuses on the creation of her seminal early works and her experiences while living among many of the major visual artists of the time. Members of Twyla Tharp Dance recreate excerpts of the works that Tharp discusses during the program. An award-winning choreographer, dancer, and author, Tharp has choreographed more than 160 dances that have appeared in feature movies, ballets, Broadway shows, and television specials. Tharp’s lasting contributions to the worlds of art and dance have been recognized with two Emmy Awards, a Tony Award, a National Medal of the Arts, and a Kennedy Center Honor. Minimalism and Me marks Tharp’s debut at the MCA Stage. Performances take place in the MCA’s Edlis Neeson Theater.
