Event Description

BILL T. JONES/ARNIE ZANE DANCE COMPANY

“SERENADE-THE PROPOSITION”
Bill T. Jones’ Exploration into the Legacy of Abraham Lincoln

Monday, November 2, 2009, 6–8pm at Joyce SoHo (155 Mercer street)

Serenade/The Proposition approaches the legacy of Abraham Lincoln as a rumination on the nature of history. On the eve of the Bicentennial of Lincoln's birth, some of his documented words, his contemporary's writings and speeches, and other texts are used to set up the push and pull of historical perspective. Janet Wong, Associate Artistic Director of Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company and videographer of Serenade leads a video-illustrated talk on the making of the work and the ideas that shape it.

Not seen at The Joyce since 1996, the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company returns to The Joyce November 10–15 with Serenade/The Proposition, a work commissioned by The Joyce Theater as part of our 25th Anniversary celebration. In the work, our connection to history—or lack thereof—is evoked through video by Janet Wong, an original score blending classical and folk music in a contemporary pastiche by electric cellist Chris Lancaster, Juilliard's Jerome Begin on piano and text sung by soprano Lisa Komara.
