TwylaTharp: AllAmerican

February 22-26, 2012

John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts

In homage to the high priestess of contemporary dance, The Washington Ballet mounts an all-Twyla Tharp program. Showcasing works from two decades of Tharp’s prodigious career, this program shows off The Washington Ballet dancers at their best. In her classic Nine Sinatra Songs, the music of Ol' Blue Eyes leads the dancers on an erotic investigation of ballroom dancing. Tharp’s Surfer at the River Styx (TWB premiere) reveals another dimension of her infinite imagination, a powerful sextet matched by the power of its original score by Donald Knaack. This program is rounded out by Tharp's best known "crossover ballet," Push Comes to Shove.
