Join choreographer Bill T. Jones, the Orion Quartet, and dancers from the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company for an evening of conversation and celebration of the connections between the very modern and the very classic with live music and dance. WQXR’s Terrance McKnight hosts. Watch the on-demand video webcast below.

 

MacArthur Genius Award-winning choreographer Bill T. Jones has been creating modern dances of profound urgency and relevance for over 30 years, engaging issues of identity and expressing social commentary in ways that have transformed the face of American dance.

Continuing to push the boundaries, Jones has set several of his dances to classical music. The upcoming New York season of The Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company at the Joyce Theater will be danced entirely to chamber music by Mozart, Schubert and Ravel, performed live by the acclaimed Orion String Quartet.
