Choreographer Bill T. Jones on dance, life and 'a space that is a memory space'

Feb 2, 2018

"Art is going to save us, right?" Choreographer Bill T. Jones opens his talk. He says it’s not a laugh line. His answer is sobering.

In the iconoclastic world of modern dance, Bill T. Jones has long searched for answers to questions like, “What is love? What is death? And what does art have to do with it?” He explores those themes in this talk “Analogy/Form: Finding Meaning in Confusing Times.”

Jones is the artistic director, choreographer, and co-founder of the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Company. He gave this UW Graduate School Jessie and John Danz Lecture on January 30 at The University of Washington’s Kane Hall.
