Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company

2 events, Feb 5 Through 6   More dates
100 Northern Ave, Boston, MA   (view map)

When Arnie Zane died of AIDS in 1988, one might have predicted that his important, post-modern work with Bill T. Jones would be lost. After all, these often wry, athletic, and pared-down duets depended on the contrast and intimacy between the tall black man and his short Jewish partner. But as Ezra Pound said, "What thou lov'st well is thy true heritage." With a little help from the National Endowment for the Arts, dances that haven't been seen since their original performances have been brought back into repertory and the work has been remounted for a new generation of performers — and for audiences that know Bill T. Jones primarily as the Tony-winning choreographer of the Broadway musical Fela! Commissioned by the ICA, Body Against Body gets its world premiere alongside new, contextualizing video footage by the company's associate artistic director, Janet Wong.

Body Against Body, a reconstruction of early Jones/Zane solos and duets to include Continuous Replay [1978], Blauvelt Mountain [1980], and Monkey Run Road [1979]
