Description

The repertory of the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Company is recognized as one of the most innovative and powerful forces in the modern dance world. MacArthur award-winning Bill T. Jones’s latest work, Analogy: A Trilogy, is comprised of three evening-length works that reflect Jones’s fierce engagement with race, class, gender, history and identity. Over three nights, Meany Center will present the entire trilogy (one of the first ever presentations in the country). The program, which features a live music soundscape, interconnects the three stories with a focus on memory and the effect of powerful events on the inner lives of individuals.

ANALOGY: A TRILOGY

Program A (Thursday, February 1)
DORA: TRAMONTANE Based on an oral history Jones conducted with 95-year old Dora Amelan, a French Jewish nurse and survivor of WWII. Dora is a meditation on perseverance, resourcefulness and resilience while suggesting the amorphous nature of memory.

Program B: Friday, February 2
LANCE: PRETTY AKA THE ESCAPE ARTIST Based on an oral history Jones conducted with his nephew, Lance T. Briggs. Lance is a tragic, yet humorous journey through the sex trade, drug use and excess during the 1980s.

Program C: Saturday, February 3
AMBROS: THE EMIGRANT Based on Ambros Adelwarth, a German valet to a dissipated, young scion of a wealthy Jewish family in W. G. Sebald’s celebrated historical novel, The Emigrants. Ambros is an exploration of how trauma can go underground in the psyche to direct the course of an individual’s life.
