BILL T. JONES/ARNIE ZANE DANCE COMPANY
“Chapel/Chapter is a riveting experience…the visceral impact of the piece is inescapable.” —New York Times
You’ve never seen Bill T. Jones quite this way before—the world-renowned dance company will perform up close and personal in YBCA ’s intimate Forum. In Chapel/Chapter, Jones asks, “How can we reconcile what we see in the media with our personal experience of the world?” Through song and joyful movement, and by juxtaposing the official language of news articles and court transcripts with the personal language of folksong and storytelling, Jones invites the “real world” into a freely imagined, contemplative space; both courtroom and sanctuary, a place of judgment and refuge. With original score by funk/classical/rock violinist Daniel Bernard Roumain. Seating is very limited for this special engagement—buy your tickets today!
October 18, 19, 20, & 21 at 8:00 pm; October 21 at 3:00 pm
Tickets: $50 regular; $43 students, seniors, teachers; $38 YBCA members
