The Deep Blue Sea (Working title, Work-in-progress)
You are invited into a very early work-in-progress of the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Company’s latest work, The Deep Blue Sea. This work will premiere as part of the 2019-2020 season.
Drawing from inspiration from Melville’s evocative description of Pip, the young black “cabin boy”, floating alone in the sea, The Deep Blue Sea will be exploring the relationship of loneliness/aloneness as it pertains to, or contrasts to group identity. The work will begin with a solo figure that will be performed by Mr. Jones or a company member, evolving over time into an ensemble of ten (the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Company), that further expands into a community of one hundred people. Deep Blue Sea will be a meditation on the nature of community building in a confusing era.
