Deuce Coupe III

Description

The original Deuce Coupe was created for a cast of ballet and modern dancers and the second iteration for an all-Joffrey Ballet cast. Deuce Coupe III is a revision for Tharp’s modern dance company. This version features new duets to “Mama Says” and "Shut Up/Go Home,” but retains much of the original choreography.
