The Joyce presents one of this century’s most acclaimed artists, Twyla Tharp, in a program focused on her early dances. In Minimalism and Me, Tharp recollects the creation of her seminal early works and their relationship to the minimalist period in visual art. Members of Twyla Tharp Dance recreate excerpts from many of these works—from Tank Dive to The History Of Up And Down, and concluding with Eight Jelly Rolls. The program, featuring works made from 1965 to 1971, offers audiences a unique view of the work of a remarkable artist during an extraordinary period of innovation.
