Synopsis:
An instant “hit” when ABT premiered this ballet in 1990, the dancing is the thing in this fling. The work is an admirably fierce and aggressive plunge into what a dance language can express, contrasting the classic ballet vocabulary with Tharp’s own spiraling, incandescent and witty modern-dance idiom.
