Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Company
Play and Play: An Evening of Movement & Music/ A Letter to My Nephew
Performed with live musicians,* Play and Play: An Evening of Movement and Music applies Jones’s inventive choreography to some of the most important Western musical works of our time. Featuring compositions by Beethoven, Mendelssohn, Mozart, Ravel or Schubert this program highlights the joy of musicians and dancers working together.
A Letter to My 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.
Composer Nick Hallett will accompany 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 music will be performed/mixed live onstage while the dance evokes a ballet class, a lively disco and more undefinable interior landscapes.
