Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Company: A Letter to My Nephew
Please note, this event has expired.
This poignant letter to choreographer Bill T. Jones’ nephew is a music and dance-driven study using movement motifs that reference a troubled life in showbusiness.
A Letter to My Nephew is an intimate, impressionistic collage for nine dancers, setting a portrait of Jones’s beloved nephew Lance T. Briggs—a talented dancer who struggled with illness and addiction—against the political landscape of the present.
This dramatic work is an evocative and moving composition of imagery, movement, and sound. Featuring Janet Wong’s haunting projections, composer Nick Hallett’s delirious score, and live performance by baritone Matthew Gamble and Hallett, 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.
