Recensione

"[An] exuberant, philosophically ambitious self-help book for the creatively challenged."

-- The New York Times Book Review

"An entertaining 'how to' guide, The Creative Habit isn't about getting the lightning bolt of inspiration, but rather the artistic necessity of old-fashioned virtues such as discipline, preparation and routine."

-- Cathleen McGuigan, Newsweek

"The Creative Habit emphasizes the work habits that lead to success."

-- C. Carr, O: The Oprah Magazine

"Twyla Tharp's amazingly plain-spoken treatise...is a frank, honest, and tough-love testament essentially arguing that art and creativity are matters of hard, old-fashioned work."

-- Sid Smith, The Chicago Tribune

"[A]s accessible, smart and eye-opening as her dance."

-- Linda Winer, Newsday

"Though its context is a choreographer's world, its principles are universally applicable and sound....It could change your life."

-- Elizabeth Zimmer, The Village Voice

Sinossi

One of the world’s leading creative artists, choreographers, and creator of the smash-hit Broadway show, Movin’ Out, shares her secrets for developing and honing your creative talents—at once prescriptive and inspirational, a book to stand alongside The Artist’s Way and Bird by Bird.

All it takes to make creativity a part of your life is the willingness to make it a habit. It is the product of preparation and effort, and is within reach of everyone. Whether you are a painter, musician, businessperson, or simply an individual yearning to put your creativity to use, The Creative Habit provides you with thirty-two practical exercises based on the lessons Twyla Tharp has learned in her remarkable thirty-five-year career.

In "Where's Your Pencil?" Tharp reminds you to observe the world -- and get it down on paper. In "Coins and Chaos," she gives you an easy way to restore order and peace. In "Do a Verb," she turns your mind and body into coworkers. In "Build a Bridge to the Next Day," she shows you how to clean the clutter from your mind overnight.

Tharp leads you through the painful first steps of scratching for ideas, finding the spine of your work, and getting out of ruts and into productive grooves. The wide-open realm of possibilities can be energizing, and Twyla Tharp explains how to take a deep breath and begin...

Di Claudio RECENSORE TOP 1000 il 3 maggio 2016
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
Ballo come un tronco, sono leggiadro come un sasso: cosa c’entro io, umile e pigro lettore, con Twyla Tharp, ballerina e coerografa statunitense?
Più di quanto si possa credere, più di una curiosità superficiale; tutù e scarpette rimangono fuori dal colpo di fulmine.
Mi è stato sufficiente leggere poche righe per rintracciare una affinità profonda con questo saggio: dove si insiste sulla creatività come un lavoro, una abitudine, un esercizio senza tregua. Il problema è che (in qualsiasi campo si operi) bisogna trasporre un mondo in un altro, cambiargli segnali, linguaggio, vestiti, struttura, valori, per poter essere innovativi ed efficaci: non si può improvvisare, non ci si affida all’estro momentaneo. L’estro stesso risulta presto una tecnica che si deve coltivare quotidianamente, e i frutti si colgono anche (e) quando l’applichiamo inconsciamente, quasi da automi.
Tutto ciò che suggerisce l’autrice non è nuovo, neanche una virgola, ma è affilato e diretto il modo in cui lo propone, la banale ed immediata messa a punto di un sistema elementare: non sei un artista, uno scrittore, un ballerino, un pittore? Certo magari sei un ingegnere, un cuoco, un imprenditore, un insegnante, un genitore... “learn it and use it for life”, recita il sottotilo. Non esiste un solo aspetto della vita che non necessiti di creatività, che non ne chieda un baule, un sacco, un silos, una sporta.
Proprio perché si tratta di un esercizio, di una abitudine, il libro suggerisce una serie di esercizi pratici che servono a fare il punto, a ricoverare qualcosa di ovvio (probabilmente) di sé stessi, a darsi limiti certi o attaccarsi ad un filo, ad un inizio.

Simply a must for any creative, at any stage of one's career, if only to learn and aknowledge the brilliant artistic life of a great contemporary american coreographer.
A book full of secrets that is a big act of love to Art and to all those committed to art making.

5.0 su 5 stelle I love Tharp's intensity! 17 agosto 2015
Di Brian Johnson - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
"I will keep stressing the point about creativity being augmented by routine and habit. Get used to it. In these pages a philosophical tug of war will periodically rear its head. It is the perennial debate, born in the Romantic era, between the beliefs that all creative acts are born of (a) some transcendent, inexplicable Dionysian act of inspiration, a kiss from God on your brow that allows you to give the world The Magic Flute, or (b) hard work.

If it isn't obvious already, I come down on the side of hard work. That's why this book is call The Creative Habit. Creativity is a habit, and the best creativity is a result of good work habits. That's it in a nutshell."

~ Twyla Tharp from The Creative Habit

Twyla Tharp is awesome.

One of the greatest choreographers in the world, she'd created more than 130 (!!!) dances for her company as well as for everyone from the Joffrey Ballet to London's Royal Ballet.

In this great book, Twyla shares some uber-Big Ideas on how we can develop our Creative Habit to more consistently rock it.

Hope you enjoy a few of my favorites:

1. Rituals of Preparation - They're a must.
2. Mozart's Genius = Discipline + work ethic.
3. Give Me 1 Week Without - Silly distractions.
4. Busy Copying - If you want to be great.
5. Reading - It does a mind good.

5.0 su 5 stelle Buy it, learn it, and use it - you won't regret it. 30 marzo 2016
Di DJ Marvin - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
This book gave me the missing piece for my own creative practice. For many, many years I have struggled with the whole "how do I work as an artist" knowing there is more to it than just the art pieces I produce. It all seems so simple now but idea generation and keeping a daily practice has been elusive for me. I admit that I own the hard copy book but it is lost in the shuffle of my many bookcases. I have a very long (1-hour plus each way) commute and have an Audible.com subscription. When I saw the book available there I immediately added it to my audio book collection. The Kindle purchase is the result of not being able to locate the hardcover book and wanting to revisit the exercises. I recommend this book to anyone trying to be creative in a world that doesn't always appreciate. let alone make it easy, to be creative.

3.0 su 5 stelle A good idea, but too cut and dry 16 gennaio 2016
Di JLW - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
I enjoyed this book, but I didn't find a lot of flexibility in the methods it presents. Tharp's message, the way I understood it, was that creativity feeds off of habit. That might be true, but the message clashes with the free spirited, spontaneity of artistic personalities. Personally, creativity feeds off of freedom for me. He message doesn't seem to leave room for "play" and "improvisation" unless "play time" and "improvisation time" are penned in your day planner. She leave no room for flowing with the mood of the moment, which sometimes means staying up later and waking up late. I can see how this would be effective for dancers (which she is) but less regimented creative art forms may not benefit from regimentation. Otherwise, it was a pretty enjoyable read

5.0 su 5 stelle A Book That Made Me Wish I Could Spend Some Time With The Author 5 luglio 2013
Di Stuart Dauermann - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
There is something about the tone of this book that connected me soul to soul with Twyla Tharp. The book is like her: no nonsense. She generously gives us her best advice about the mindset and habits of life intrinsic to the artist's identity and success. She shares her life, and those of a number of her collaborators.

I use the term "generously" because she shares frankly, empowering all who will take her advice to heart. She comes across as a person utterly committed to her art--being an artist is not something she does--it is something she is. this comes across clearly. But she doesn't romanticize the artist's identity, insisting that artists are made--by hard work and consistent discipline and habits--more than being born. She even shows how Mozart, the genius of geniuses, attained his heights due to intensive disciplined practice and habit.

There is not a pretentious bone in Twyla Tharp's body, nor is there a pretentious page in her book. I commend it highly.

3.0 su 5 stelle Helpful 4 ottobre 2013
Di Fred C - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
It's helpful. In a nutshell, it tells the reader to make a habit out of the work it takes to be creative. It has exercises to help keep one's focus. But some of the exercises are more based on trying to answer existential questions about yourself. The author uses herself as a test subject for these exercises and she naturally comes back to her beginnings and the innate reasons for being as a resource to gather creative ideas. But I couldn't finish the book because the author kept talking about herself the entire time outside of said exercieses and then uses famous figures in history to support her choices in life. Despite her intentions, her need to validate her career choices show up whenever she talks about her unique name, her upbringing, her earlist memory, etc. I appreciate that her book's main message is that ingenuity, creativity, and talent all result from unglamourous, habitual, consistent, hard work. But that message is overrun by the author's introspection of herself.
