“[Jones’s] gifts: pungent, purposeful character development, compelling storytelling and pure-dance interludes of slippery and often deeply romantic choreography.” —Washington Post
Bill T. Jones, 2010 recipient of the 33rd Annual Kennedy Center Honors for being one of America’s most accomplished dance-makers and the creative force behind Broadway hits Spring Awakening and Fela!, returns to the Walker with his 12-member international company and a new work, Story/Time. A master storyteller, Jones offers 70 stories in 70 minutes in this exhilarating homage to John Cage and Merce Cunningham. Jones commands center stage with his flow of autobiographical narratives and celebrated choreography complemented by original music and video. The Walker-commissioned Story/Time will be performed Thursday-Sunday, February 16-19, at 8 pm, with a Sunday matinee at 2 pm.
