SEATTLE, WA — As Pacific Northwest Ballet gears up for the opening of its season with AIR TWYLA, the company has announced that a portion of its lecture-demonstration, TWYLA THARP ON STAGE, will be live-streamed (via PNB.org/LIVE) for audiences who are unable to attend the September 25 evening at McCaw Hall.

TWYLA THARP ON STAGE will feature Ms. Tharp, PNB’s first artist-in-residence, in conversation with Artistic Director Peter Boal and New Orleans music legend Allen Toussaint, as well as the company rehearsing excerpts from Brief Fling and a run-thru of Waiting at the Station. (Please note that the live-stream will only include a portion of the lecture-demonstration: The rehearsal of Waiting at the Station will not be included in the live-stream. To see the full lecture-demonstration including Waiting at the Station, tickets are available through the PNB Box Office, 206.441.2424 or pnb.org.)

With AIR TWYLA, its third all-Tharp program, PNB adds two more works by the choreographer into its repertory, including a third world premiere, the jazzy Waiting at the Station. Said PNB artistic director Peter Boal, “Twyla is truly one of the great innovators of our time. We are so pleased to welcome her back to our studios and to our city once again. I’m especially looking forward to the opportunity to hear Twyla talk about the creation process during the on-stage lecture demonstration.”

AIR TWYLA presents a trio of works by Twyla Tharp. The program includes the world premiere of Waiting at the Station with a commissioned score by Mr. Toussaint, the Scottish-inspired Brief Fling (a PNB premiere), and Tharp’s homage to Ol’ Blue Eyes and ballroom dance, the unforgettable Nine Sinatra Songs. AIR TWYLA runs for only seven performances, September 27 – October 6 at Seattle Center’s Marion Oliver McCaw Hall. Tickets may be purchased by calling 206.441.2424, online at pnb.org, or in person at the PNB Box Office at 301 Mercer Street.
