If dancers are “athletes of God” as Martha Graham said, then the dancers in Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company are the champions.” —ISTHMUS
For the second concert of the season, CDT presents the world renowned Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company. Hailing from New York, the company was born out of an 11-year collaboration between Bill T. Jones and Arnie Zane (1948–1988).
Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company changed the face of American dance. They redefined the duet form and foreshadowed issues of identity, form and social commentary. The repertory of the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company is widely varied in its subject matter, visual imagery, stylistic approach to movement, voice, and stagecraft. It includes musically-driven works as well as a variety of texts. The Company has performed worldwide in over 200 cities in 40 countries on every major continent and is recognized as one of the most innovative and powerful forces in the dance-theater world.
