Not that Tharp proposes hurting oneself in the creative quest. She's merely making the point that practice is supreme, not sitting around waiting for the muse to make an appearance.
Her choice of Mozart is historical, but I've heard similar about Michael Jordan. When other ball players were out doing whatever, Jordan was on the court practicing his shots.
One of America's greatest choreographers shares her demons with us, so we know our fears aren't "special," and no, they won't go away with success, so stop with the "if only. I love the layout of this book: an airy, elegant use of color, font, and white space, which parallels the visual of her stage work. Inevitably any self-help creativity book will be compared to Julia Cameron's block-buster, The Artist's Way.
Those who liked Cameron will find similarities here, but also differences. I will be recommmending both for my career change and business consulting clients.
Cameron directly uses "spirituality" throughout her book, with references to "God," who, she says, can be broadly defined. She appeals to images and emotion.
Tharp goes directly to action. She's strictly verbal: no cute sayings, no quotations all over the page.
She's as unadorned as the Nike swish and just as straightforward: "Just do it" could be her motto. Her own life seems starkly disciplined.
Lots of people get up before dawn they must not have dogs -- mine demands a walk right away but Tharp actually gives up movies while she's working on a project. Not just movies, but videos as well. Too distracting, she says.
