<B>Choreographer gets back to business</B><BR>Twyla Tharp brings her inestimable talent to the stage with a new company. <BR>By JOHN FLEMING in The St. Petersburg Times (Florida) <P><BR>Twyla Tharp is back. With her original company, formed in the 1960s, Tharp made modern dance history, but she gave it up in 1988, fed up with the management and financial burdens of keeping it solvent. <P>Now, after working as a freelance choreographer and sometime performer, Tharp has a compact new company of six dancers and some large-scale works she created for it. She's with the company at Ruth Eckerd Hall, and after tonight's performance, she'll have a discussion with the audience. <P>Tharp has called her time without a permanent company of her own, when she worked with everyone from Mikhail Baryshnikov to American Ballet Theatre to England's Royal Ballet, "12 years in exile." Why? <P><A HREF="http://www.sptimes.com/2002/01/17/Floridian/Choreographer_gets_ba.shtml" TARGET=_blank><B>click for more</B></A>

Tharp is coming to Dallas!<P>Margaret Putnam writes in the Dallas Morning News:<P>It's been a long time since we last saw Twyla Tharp Dance. The company disbanded 12 years ago. Noted for its breezy style and impeccable structure, it reached an audience cold to most modern dance. Its director, Ms. Tharp, 60, has choreographed everything from movies (Hair, White Nights) to an Olympic figure-skating routine. <P>The company is up and running again and comes to Dallas this weekend with a new cast and new works. While the new troupe is much pared down, with only six dancers, no one can complain about them. Three are former principal dancers with American Ballet Theatre, another a former principal dancer with the Joffrey. The other two were members of New York City Ballet and Miami City Ballet.<P><A HREF="http://dfw.citysearch.com/E/E/DALTX/0215/92/94/cs1.html" TARGET=_blank><B>click for more</B></A><P>
