Third Suite

Description

No longer a group of purely modern dancers, Tharp's company was comprised of dancers with a pronounced blend of styles and experience. Third Suite, a chamber ballet, marks a shift in the variety of dances created for them.

A long pas de deux for the principal couple would later be excerpted for the television special Confessions Of A Cornermaker.
