Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Company

A Letter to My Nephew US PREMIERE

Institute of Contemporary Art ,Boston, MA
Nov 11-13, 2016

A Letter to my Nephew is Bill T. Jones’ latest work that sets out to bring together two impulses: the social/political and the deeply personal. This work is a kind of postcard: a street-scene or a still from the evening news that superimposes violent street battles in the US, desperate immigrants rushing towards freedom in Europe over the image of a hospital bed untethered from reality.

Composer Nick Hallett, baritone Matthew Gamble and DJ Tony Monkey will accompany the stunning dancers of the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Company with a delirious mixture of pop music, lullabies, house music and more. Video Design by Janet Wong will turn the stage into a battleground; through tear gas and fog Jones’ words to his nephew will come alive on stage.
