Using dance to grapple with life, choreographer-dancer Bill T. Jones has
explored suffering, redemption, self-determination, mortality, and affliction.
His prowess for creating contemporary parables is beautifully evident again
in his latest creation, You Walk? The three-part evening-length work,
which audiences had the opportunity to see in development during Bill
T. Jones' residency at the Walker last April, embraces metaphorical notions
of travel with the freest possible movement and visual language. You
Walk? features large-scale digital animation by Paul Kaiser, set design
by Bjorn Amelan, lighting by Robert Werzel, and traditional music of the
Americas, Portuguese fado songs, and 20th-century compositions. Note: This performance contains partial nudity. Copresented
with Northrop Auditorium as part of the 2000-2001 Discover series. Lower-tier-priced tickets are available through the Northrop box office at 612.624.2345.
