Bill T. Jones to speak on 'The Body,' April 12
Posted April 5, 2001; 10:20 a.m.
Modern dancer and choreographer Bill T. Jones will speak on "The Body: A Gateway and Two Doors" at 8 p.m. Thursday, April 12, in Helm Auditorium, McCosh 50. The free event is the J. Edward Farnum Lecture and is part of the Public Lectures Series.
Jones, co-founder of the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company, uses body movement to address a range of issues and emotions -- from the politics of race relations and sexuality to the primal urges of love, anger and death.
Jones has won numerous accolades for his work. In 1994, he received a MacArthur Foundation "genius grant." He has earned several Choreographic Fellowships from the National Endowment of the Arts and two New York Dance and Performance Awards for the company's 1986 Joyce Theater season and for his work, "D-Man in the Waters."
