Multi-talented artist, esteemed choreographer, dancer, theater director and writer Bill T. Jones brings his company to the Arsht Center for the very first time. In addition to creating more than 140 works for his own company, Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane company, Mr. Jones has also received many commissions to construct masterpieces for modern and ballet companies including Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, Bost Ballet, Lyon Opera Ballet and the Berlin Opera Ballet among others.
He comes to ARSHT presenting Analogy/Lance: Pretty aka The Escape Artist (inspired by Lance T. Briggs); whose life has been a struggle through addiction and recovery. In 2014, he began an oral history project with his uncle, Bill T. Jones. He is writing a memoir called “Welcome to The Pretty Show”.
Composer Nick Hallett and baritone Matthew Gamble will accompany the stunning dancers of the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Company with a delirious mixture of lullabies, rhythm and blues and house music. The music will be performed live on-stage while the dance evokes a ballet class, a lively disco and more indefinable interior landscapes.
