Five Days in Italy Through My Favorite Filters

| 7.3.16 | Tour diary. (Or, the photos that didn’t make it to Instagram.) Photos from a recent Tharp tour to Italy, where the company performed an evening of three dances scheduled to arrive in New York this month. Few program spoilers here. Instead, a look at our five-day adventure abroad as captured before, after, and in-between performances.
