Afterwardsness is a hypnotic new piece by Tony Award-winning choreographer, director, and dancer Bill T. Jones. Performed by the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Company in the expansive Wade Thompson Drill Hall for an audience of 100, Afterwardsness addresses the isolation and trauma of the twin pandemics of COVID-19 and on-going violence against Black bodies. The poignancy of the movement is under-pinned by a musical landscape featuring a new vocal composition by Holland Andrews, a violin solo for George Floyd entitled “Homage” by Pauline Kim Harris, as well as excerpts from Olivier Messaien’s war-time composition Quartet for the End of Time.
