For decades, Twyla Tharp has astounded the world with her trademark, unprecedented ingenuity. Now 79 years old, Twyla is entering a new phase of her life – but she hasn’t stopped moving. Interwoven with her storied career and prolific works, TWYLA MOVES sees legendary choreographer Twyla Tharp navigate her latest creative challenge: making a dance for a world plagued by the Covid-19 pandemic.
Twyla Tharp is an American dancer, choreographer, and author who lives and works in New York City. In 1966 she formed the company Twyla Tharp Dance. Her work often uses classical music, jazz, and contemporary pop music. From 1971 to 1988, Twyla Tharp Dance toured extensively around the world, performing original works. In 1988, Twyla Tharp Dance merged with American Ballet Theatre. On May 24, 2018, Tharp was awarded an honorary Doctor of Arts degree by Harvard University.
