“The air was crackling with enthusiasm… The night was so fun. Tharp reminds us all that at its core, dance should always be just that.” – Broadway World

Revolutionary choreographer Twyla Tharp returns to TITAS celebrating her 60th anniversary with a boundary-breaking program featuring a dynamic revival and two new pieces. Ocean’s Motion (1975) featuring music by rock and roll pioneer Chuck Berry, and Brel  is an homage to the Belgian vocalist Jacques Brel. Composer Simeon ten Holt’s signature minimalist style in Bi-Ba-Bo intermingles with Vivaldi’s Baroque score in masterful new work The Ballet Master.

Jubliant, often comic, and stunningly precise and musical choreography, this evening of dance is a shining example of Tharp’s signature technical precision and wit.


Nothing replaces that shared visceral connection we get from a live performance. That phenomenal moment of surprise and awe is what makes the TITAS/DANCE UNBOUND season so special. Diverse, global, surprising and entertaining, all describe the magic of TITAS. Nothing Replaces the Live Experience.
