Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Company

Analogy/Lance: Pretty aka The Escape Artist & Analogy/Dora: Tramontane

Joyce Theater, New York, NY
Oct 25-Nov 6
Tickets start at $10

The renowned company returns to The Joyce to perform two pieces from the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Company’s Analogy Trilogy, a work based on oral histories that Jones conducted. Each part reveals Jones’ ongoing exploration of how text, storytelling, and movement pull and push against each other as the performers move seamlessly between dancing, speaking, and singing. Analogy/Dora: Tramontane, recounts the story of 95-year old Dora Amelan, a French Jewish nurse, social worker and World War II survivor. A Joyce commission,Analogy/Lance: Pretty aka The Escape Artist divulges the story of Lance T. Briggs, whose battles with his own demons—drugs and excess—reveal another type of war.
