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 fi erce 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, searches for the connection between three stories, focusing on memory and the eff ect of powerful events on the inner lives of individuals.

World Dance Series subscriptions include the Trilogy program for the night of your subscription. To see the entire Trilogy, add the other programs to your renewal order.
