Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Company: Analogy Trilogy
About Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane
Choreographed by Artistic Director and Kennedy Center Honoree Bill T. Jones and Associate Artistic Director Janet Wong, Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Company presents three separate evening-length works that delve into the voice of the marginalized in our society, exploring identity, migration, survival, and family. Dancers move, sing, and speak as they are accompanied by live music, video, and projections that help guide the story.
Analogy/Dora: Tramontane (Mar. 28)
Based on an oral history that Jones conducted with his mother-in-law, a French Jewish nurse and social worker, the work tells her story of survival during World War II.
Analogy/Lance: Pretty aka the Escape Artist (Mar. 29)
Jones shares the emotional struggle and hardships that his nephew Lance faced in the underworld of the late ’80s and early ’90s club culture and sex trade.
Analogy/Ambros: The Emigrant (Mar. 30)
Inspired by W.G. Seblad’s historical novel The Emigrant, Jones creates a fictionalized narrative for the character Ambros Adelwarth to explore the impact of trauma on the psyche.
