Twyla Tharp Dance and Film Collaborations
Twyla Tharp, leading innovator and cultural icon, transformed dance. Her choreography for the films Hair (1979) and White Nights (1985) showcase elements of a current collaboration between Tharp and Indiana University: a groundbreaking new IU course, Twyla Tharp Fundamentals in Movement and Creativity. The Hollywood Reporter wrote of her choreography, “Formalism clashing with the chaos of nature is at the root of much of what Tharp does.” The Tharp fundamentals class is offered for students from any major with no prior dance experience—students will learn to think and move like a creative genius and apply what they learn to any field of study. This partnership is supported through IU Cinema’s Creative Collaborations program.
This series is sponsored by the Department of Theatre, Drama, and Contemporary Dance; the Office of the Provost and Executive Vice President; and IU Cinema.
