A pre-show conversation featuring Artistic Director Bill T. Jones and Associate Artistic Director Janet Wong with Mary Disanto-Rose
Born in 1982, the trailblazing Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Company foreshadowed issues of identity, form and social commentary that would change the face of American dance. With a repertory that is widely varied in its subject matter, visual imagery and stylistic approach to movement, voice and stagecraft, it remains one of the foremost contemporary dance groups in the world.
Support provided by the NYS Council on the Arts and Executive Park.
This performance is part of the “Dance in Albany” performance series, presented in collaboration with the UAlbany Performing Arts Center, offering a diverse mix, ranging from the work of iconic choreographer Mark Morris and the return of tap legend Savion Glover, to explorations of African American movement from modern to hip-hop to street club by the Passion Fruit and Dayton Contemporary Dance Companies, to the athleticism of Monica Bill Barnes to the fusion of illusion and motion by NoGravity Theatre, along with opportunities to experience the artistry of Ellen Sinopoli in both January and May.
We also invite you to a free performance by the Ellen Sinopoli Dance Company at the UAlbany Performing Arts Center on Jan. 27 in a collaboration with that venue’s resident ensemble, the Capital Trio.
