BILL T. JONES/ARNIE ZANE COMPANY : A LETTER TO MY NEPHEW
BILL T. JONES/ARNIE ZANE COMPANY
The latest from choreographer Bill T. Jones is an intimate, impressionistic collage for nine dancers, setting a portrait of his beloved nephew Lance T. Briggs—a talented dancer who struggled with illness and addiction—against the political landscape of the present. Composed like a series of postcards sent home from a fabled liberal Europe, A Letter to My Nephew launches a swirl of images around Briggs’ ever-present hospital bed: a vogue ball, a breathtaking vista, a scene of forced migration. Featuring Janet Wong’s haunting projections, composer Nick Hallett’s delirious score, and live performance by baritone Matthew Gamble, Jones’ cultural critique is rewritten for the time and place of every performance, flashing by each night like a feverish hour of the evening news.
