Twyla Tharp



BAM Affiliation One of the most successful choreographers of her generation, Twyla Tharp is known for her work on popular Broadway productions like The Catherine Wheel (a collaboration with David Byrne), as well as her work for films such as Hair, and her crossover ballets, which fuse traditional dance with pop music. Her ensemble, Twyla Tharp and Dancers, were in residence at BAM in 1976 and '77, and returned again for repertory runs in '79, '84, and '87. Most recently, the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater performed "The Golden Section" of The Catherine Wheel as a stand-alone piece at BAM, which is one of her most performed pieces of choreography due to its combination of technical difficulty and dazzle.
