The pride of Portland, Indiana, choreographer Twyla Tharp premiered a new work, “Rabbit and Rogue” with the American Ballet Theatre last week, earning a range of reviews from enthusiasm to dismissal .

In reading them, I was taken back to Tharp’s own inspiring words on creativity, success and failure, which you can listen to in a brief clip here.

Given most of us aren’t there to see Tharp’s latest work, I thought I’d offer up a look at some of her previous creations.

Here’s “Ballet in the Upper Room,” set to Philip Glass music.

And the Broadway cast of her Billy Joel-fueled “Movin’ Out.” (You’ll need to go about two minutes into the clip).

And her opening sequence for the film version of "Hair."
