About

“The choreography flows with an engaging slipperiness.”—The New York Times

A true pillar of modern dance, Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Company makes a triumphant return, having last performed at the Kennedy Center in 2011. Choreographed by Artistic Director and Kennedy Center Honoree Bill T. Jones and Associate Artistic Director Janet Wong, the company brings 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 Trilogy

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 characterAmbros Adelwarth to explore the impact of trauma on the psyche.
