    The acclaimed Twyla Tharp Dance returns to Austin with a celebratory program that includes two new works and a lively revival. Featuring music by rock and roll pioneer Chuck Berry, Ocean’s Motion (1975) celebrates teenage good times, spilling over with youthful daring and high-wattage performances of Tharp’s signature blend of ballet and jazz dance. Brel is a new solo in homage to the Belgian songwriter Jacques Brel where Tharp's command of wit and musicality shine in dancing that is both introspective and stunningly athletic. Composer Simeon ten Holt’s minimalist music mixes with Vivaldi’s Baroque scores in The Ballet Master, a new work mixing technical precision and joyful ease. Unpredictable and dynamic, Tharp’s creations solidify her place as one of the century’s most innovative choreographers.
