For the first time in nearly a decade, the New York-based international award-winning modern dance company Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Company will perform in Fairfield County at The Quick Center for the Arts at Fairfield University. This performance has been selected as finale of WPKN’s ‘Black History Month’ and is a benefit for nonprofit, community radio WPKN (89.5-FM, Bridgeport). All ticket purchases will also support Bridgeport students from the FAME after-school program to have access to this performance.
The Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Company, created in 1982, out of an 11-year collaboration between Bill T. Jones and Arnie Zane (1948–1988). During this time, they redefined the duet form and foreshadowed issues of identity, form and social commentary that would change the face of American dance. The Company has performed worldwide in over 200 cities in 40 countries on every major continent and is recognized as one of the most innovative and powerful forces in the dance-theater world. Bill T. Jones is a choreographer, MacArthur Genius Awardee, and two-time Tony Award winner.
