@ UW World Series

Meany Hall on the UW Campus
Seattle WA  98195



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.

PROGRAM A | THURSDAY
DORA: TRAMONTANE
Based on an oral history Jones conducted with 95-year old Dora Amelan, a French Jewish nurse and survivor of WWII. Dora is a meditation on perseverance, resourcefulness and resilience while suggesting the amorphous nature of memory.

PROGRAM B | FRIDAY
LANCE: PRETTY AKA THE ESCAPE ARTIST
Based on an oral history Jones conducted with his nephew, Lance T. Briggs. Lance is a tragic, yet humorous journey through the sex trade, drug use and excess during the 1980s.

PROGRAM C | SATURDAY
AMBROS: THE EMIGRANT
Based on Ambros Adelwarth, a German valet to adissipated, young scion of a wealthy Jewish family,from W. G. Sebald’s celebrated historical novel, The Emigrants. Ambros is an exploration of how trauma can go underground in the psyche to direct the course of an individual’s life.
