Abstract:

An extraordinary choreographic vision of the modern world and modern life taking the martyrdom of Saint Catherine on the wheel as a point of departure. 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. Preceded by rehearsal footage and an interview with Tharp and leading members of her dance troupe as they explain the theme and preparations for the production.
