Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Company
Analogy/Lance: Pretty aka The Escape Artist
Lance, the second part of Jones’s Analogy Trilogy tells the story of Lance Theodore Briggs, a former dancer, model, songwriter, and male escort, and his struggle addiction and recovery. Composer Nick Hallett’s score accompanies the stunning dancers with a delirious mixture of rhythm and blues and classic house music. The music is performed live on stage by Hallett and baritone Matthew Gamble, while the dance evokes a ballet class, a lively disco and indefinable interior landscapes.
