Twyla Tharps Moving Notations and Comments
Barnard College presents a discussion with groundbreaking choreographer and Distinguished Guest Artist Twyla Tharp 63, and Kathryn Kolbert, co-founder of the Athena Film Festival. Tharp will share clips from her career and reflect on the use of moving-image technology in the dance-making process.
For the last 50 years Twyla Tharp 63 has used and continues to use moving image technology as a tool in her dance-making process. She has also created screen-specific choreography for groundbreaking movies such as Hair, Ragtime, Amadeus, and White Nights. Her television credits include the award-winning Making Television Dance for PBS and The Catherine Wheel for the BBC, as well as Baryshnikov by Tharp, for which she won two Primetime Emmy Awards. Since the 1960s, Tharp has assembled an archive of over 4,000 hours that records not only her work as a choreographer but also her evolving physicality as a dance artist. Tharp will join Kathryn Kolbert, co-founder of the Athena Film Festival, for a conversation and will share clips from her career.
