The creative habit : learn it and use it for life : a practical guide by Twyla Tharp( Book )

6 editions published between 2003 and 2006 in English and held by 2,067 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Creativity is not a gift from the gods, says Twyla Tharp, it is the product of preparation and effort, and it's within reach of everyone who wants to achieve it. Here, Tharp takes the lessons she has learned in her remarkable thirty-five-year career and shares them with you, whatever creative impulses you follow--whether you are a painter, composer, writer, director, choreographer, or, for that matter, a businessperson working on a deal, a chef developing a new dish, a mother wanting her child to see the world anew. When Tharp is at a creative dead end, she relies on a lifetime of exercises to help her get out of the rut, and The Creative Habit contains more than thirty of them to ease the fears of anyone facing a blank beginning and to open the mind to new possibilities.--From publisher description

Nikolai Rodchenko, a Russian ballet dancer who defected from the Soviet Union years ago, finds himself back in the motherland--trapped--thanks to an emergency airplane landing. The Soviets do not imprison him, however; they hope to score a propaganda victory by 'persuading' him to become Russian again. That is why he is sent to Siberia, to Raymond Greenwood and his Russian wife Darya. Greenwood is an American tap dancer who defected to Russia in opposition to the Vietnam War. Nikolai makes Raymond realize how limited his life is in the USSR, and together they hatch a plan to evade their KGB minders, escape to the American Embassy and eventually the US
The Catherine wheel by Twyla Tharp Dance Foundation( Visual )

20 editions published between 1982 and 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 445 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When Twyla Tharp's The Catherine Wheel premiered on Broadway, it was described by Arlene Croce--dance critic for The New Yorker magazine--as "A major event in our theater," with "dancing of astonishing beauty and power." It was then completely refashioned by Tharp especially for television, with computer-generated figures, shadow-play, and reverse action - creating a wholly separate video version that has also met with overwhelming praise. The work is set to an original score written and performed by David Byrne of Talking Heads, and grew out of Tharp's fascination with Saint Catherine, the 4th-century martyr who was condemned to die on a spiked wheel
