Twyla Tharp: Making Television Dance by Twyla Tharp( Visual )

3 editions published between 1977 and 2013 in English and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An exploration by one of America's most eminent choreographer/dancers, Twyla Tharp, of the relationship between the complex technology of television and the realm of dance. By utilizing the almost infinite creative genius and vitality of the dancer's art and the possibilities presented by television's highly sophisticated science, Twyla Tharp has produced a fusion of the two-a creation which is both television and dance carried to the highest degree. The freedom allowed by video techniques and the creatively provided by Twyla Tharp's choreography complement one another perfectly, and make possible an exciting and innovative dance/video work
The Catherine wheel by Twyla Tharp Dance Foundation( Visual )

2 editions published between 1982 and 1992 in English and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When Twyla Tharp's The Catherine Wheel premiered on Broadway, it was described by Arlene Croce--dance critic for The New Yorker magazine--as "A major event in our theater," with "dancing of astonishing beauty and power." It was then completely refashioned by Tharp especially for television, with computer-generated figures, shadow-play, and reverse action - creating a wholly separate video version that has also met with overwhelming praise. The work is set to an original score written and performed by David Byrne of Talking Heads, and grew out of Tharp's fascination with Saint Catherine, the 4th-century martyr who was condemned to die on a spiked wheel
