Talking Dance with Bill T. Jones



Senior Curator of Performing Arts Philip Bither speaks with choreographer and longtime Walker collaborator Bill T. Jones in conjunction with the presentation of Jones’ Blind Date. Blind Date is an evening-length work exploring patriotism, honor, sacrifice, and service to a cause larger than oneself. Jones’ technically stunning 10-member company performed in a landscape of primary colors with live musical accompaniment by Daniel Bernard Roumain. As if on a “blind date,” wisdom and eloquence met dumbed-down fundamentalism in this explosive meditation on opposing forces and contrasting beliefs.
