Abstract. We review some recent advances in Teichmuller theory, namely, some results on the behavior of Teichmuller geodesics and other geodesic-like paths in Teichmuller space, as well as the large-scale geometry of Teichmuller space. Our approach centers on the relationship between Teichmuller space and its associated curve complex, the space that encodes its important combinatorial data.
