Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company
“The Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company [is] one of the glories of American dance.” —San Francisco Chronicle
In the hands of choreographer Bill T. Jones, dance becomes an extraordinary tool for probing life’s big questions and journeying toward understanding. In this new evening-length work, he explores patriotism, honor, sacrifice, and service to a cause larger than oneself—values all but lost in our modern world. Jones’ technically stunning 10-member company performs in a landscape of primary colors with live musical accompaniment by Daniel Bernard Roumain. As if on a “blind date,” wisdom and eloquence meet dumbed-down fundamentalism in this explosive meditation on opposing forces and contrasting beliefs.
