Hair was Tharp’s first collaboration with director Miloš Forman. Shot almost entirely on location, Tharp used her previous experience with site-specific choreography to create cinematic dance numbers in the large spaces of Central Park and the steps of the Lincoln Memorial.
In a unique arrangement, Forman commissioned Tharp’s company as an entity, rather than choreographer and dancers independently. This agreement gave Tharp an uncommon degree of autonomy in the production that facilitated this very successful collaboration between director and choregrapher.
Excerpts from "Aquarius," the opening musical number.
