DORA: TRAMONTANE (Program A)
This first work from Analogy stems from 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.
 
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 fierce 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.
 
To see the entire trilogy, purchase additional tickets to Program B and Program C.
 
PROGRAM B | FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 2
LANCE: PRETTY AKA THE ESCAPE ARTIST
Based on an oral history Jones conducted with his nephew, Lance T. Briggs, this work is a tragic, yet humorous journey through the sex trade, drug use and excess during the 1980s. BUY TICKETS
 
PROGRAM C | SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 3
AMBROS: THE EMIGRANT

The final program of Analogy is 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. BUY TICKETS
