Dean’s Lecture Series @ The University of MarylandCollege Park, MD
Bill T. Jones in Conversation moderated by Leigh Wilson Smiley kicks off the 2011-2012 Dean's Lecture Series.
“For me, the big struggle has been to find a place in the world through identity, history, and love…Though I move on, I must always ask the questions: Whom do I love, and what values are worth holding on to?” – Bill T. Jones
Earlier this year, NPR's Tom Ashbrook said, “Dancer and choreographer Bill T. Jones is a force of nature. Artist. Exhibitionist. Contrarian. Crowd-pleaser. He’s been denounced and picketed – and hailed as a genius… Dance Master, Bill T. Jones.”
Join College of Arts and Humanities students for an open conversation with this provocative, award-winning artist who was named “An Irreplaceable Dance Treasure” by the Dance Heritage Coalition in 2000 and is internationally acclaimed as a trailblazer with a “fearless reflection of political concerns in his work.”
