A Letter to My Nephew/Pretty
This letter to Jones’ nephew is a music and dance driven study using movement motifs that reference a troubled life in show business, the sex trade and the hard job of growing up. This is a celebration and meditation on the life of Lance T. Briggs.
Music composed by Nick Hallett accompanies the stunning dancers of the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company with a delirious mixture of lullabies, rhythm and blues and house music. The dance evokes a ballet class, a lively disco and more undefinable interior landscapes.
