NEW YORK TIMES: Twyla Tharp’s NY Times Tour Blog

Twyla Tharp has launched a blog in the New York Times Arts Beat section, which houses the Times’s online arts coverage.

Twyla is the first creative artist that the Times’s has assigned such space on the culture pages.  Her blog, to be posted once or twice week beginning now and continuing through the 10-week tour,  will offer a rare firsthand, unfiltered glimpse into an artist’s creative process, providing a treasure house of  unique perceptions, observations and analysis of a range of subjects such as choreography, performing on the road, rehearsing, photography, music, and the relation of language to dance, to name a few.  Twyla’s own photography, panoramic  photos taken with an iPhone 6, reveal her to be a wonderful photographer with an uncanny eye. These photos will be embedded in the blogs.  In a word, what Twyla  is accomplishing is invaluable; as usual, she is setting a precedent.
