Celebrating Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Company

Celebrating choreographer Bill T. Jones, seven archival performances by the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Company will be streamed on BAM’s website: Secret Pastures (1984), The Animal Trilogy (1986), Still/Here (1994), We Set Out Early…Visibility Was Poor (1998), The Flight Project (2003), The Phantom Project: The 20th Season (2004), and A Quarreling Pair (2008). The company, first at BAM in 1983, creates works which combine dance with music, storytelling, video, projection and other visual elements. This company, more than once, has been in the crosshairs of profound, fractious social conversations: identity, race, sexual politics, rethinking history and the very place of art in a country still striving to earn its name as a modern democracy.

Dance Data Project® (DDP) launches its Global Conversations – Navigating Challenging Times, the second round in a series of virtual interviews. Round 2 provides a platform for the female leaders (and male allies) who are stewarding organizations through an unprecedented health and economic crisis that has disproportionately affected women and people of color. These leaders embody the unique skill sets and initiative required to successfully manage, and in some cases step into, an arts organization during especially turbulent times. Tune in on Dance Data Project's IGTV, YouTube, or website.
